We were contacted by police regarding a party that had separated on Scafell Pike. A group of 4 including a dad and his teenage daughter were climbing Scafell Pike together. The daughter and her friend decided to wait at Hollowstones whilst dad went to the summit. Unfortunately he lost the path on the way back down and went into Eskdale. Just as we were setting off on a search for the girls we met them coming off the fell, having made their own way down the mountain. One team member waited with the girls whilst the two men were brought round to Wasdale by the duty team leader. Incident closed around 17:30.

Incident started at 17:00 and ended at 18:00 making 1 hrs in total. There were 6 Wasdale team members involved. Total rescuer hours: 6
