A call was received from Cumbria Police about a lone walker who had become stuck on steep ground, somewhere around Lord’s Rake. A limited group of team members and drone pilots were called out to assist. With mobile reception very patchy in that area the Phonefind was less accurate than normal so the exact location was not known. When in the area team members split into smaller groups and located the walker in Red Gill, fortunately not in too serious a predicament. He was then carefully assisted back down to safe ground and all members descended back to Brackenclose.

Incident started at 13:50 and ended at 19:34 making 5.7 hrs in total. There were 9 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY206068. Total rescuer hours: 51
