We were contacted by Police about a group of 2 who had lost the path and were finding it difficult to walk any further. In discussion the team leader was able to determine they were in the broken ground between Lingmell Col and Piers Gill. Due to the potential for a stretcher carry a full callout was initiated. In the end they were met by team members walking down the Brown Tongue path having regained the path and made their own way off the mountain. Incident closed 19:30. 20 WMRT involved.
Incident started at 16:00 and ended at 19:30 making 3.5 hrs in total. There were 20 Wasdale team members involved. Total rescuer hours: 70
