We were called by Police following an emergency call that was cut short and subsequently traced to Scafell Pike. We assembled ready for a search but it was then established the walker was most likely now safe & well and we stood down. Conditions were particularly poor at this stage and we were grateful of not going out.
Incident started at 13:08 and ended at 15:11 making 2.1 hrs in total. There were 21 Wasdale team members involved. Total rescuer hours: 44
