We were contacted by Keswick team regarding 2 people who had started their walk at Seathwaite but were now understood to be heading to Wasdale from Scafell Pike and struggling due to the darkness and uncertainty in their position. Following further phone calls it was established they were descending the Brown Tongue path heading for Brackenclose where they were met near the car park by one of the duty leaders and given a lift to the rescue base to warm up and arrange onward transport.

Incident started at 20:00 and ended at 22:30 making 2.5 hrs in total. There were 2 Wasdale team members involved. Total rescuer hours: 5
