We were called by Police about 2 walkers on the 3 peaks challenge who’d become stuck at the top of Scafell Pike and unable to make their way down. Initially it was difficult to contact the walkers but after a team member visited Brackenclose and met the rest of their party it was possible to talk on the phone. It was initially hoped that other 3 peaks parties on the mountain would find them and help them off the hill but eventually 2 team members went up to the top and helped escort them down.
Incident started at 21:31 and ended at 05:45 making 8.2 hrs in total. There were 3 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 2154 0754. Total rescuer hours: 25
