Scafell Pike

The team was contacted at around 07:00 regarding two lost people on Scafell Pike. They were apart of a group of 90 people who were attempting the 3 Peaks Challenge. The pair had no mountaineering experience and did not know their location or where they were going or come from. The rest of the group made their own way from the hill. The team leader identified the pairs location from their description and was able to give directions for them to make their own way from the mountain. The pair arrived at Wasdale where the rest of their group was waiting at around 11:00. A very avoidable 999 call.

Incident started at 07:00 and ended at 12:30 making 5.5 hrs in total.
