Whilst search for the lost people on Scafell Pike was underway we received another call, this time for an experienced 80 year old male who was very overdue from a walk up Red pike. The team started a search (again supported by Duddon and Furness MRT) but thankfully he turned up in the Ennerdale valley having taken a wrong turn.
Incident started at 19:24 and ended at 22:45 making 3.4 hrs in total. There were 21 Wasdale team members involved. Total rescuer hours: 71
