Scafell Pike
, ,

We were alerted by Cumbria Police regarding two walkers who reported themselves lost on the descent from Scafell Pike. “Phonefind” put them partway between the summit and Mickledore. They were given directions to descend via Mickledore and were asked to keep using Phonefind to pinpoint their location. When there were no updates and it was not possible to reach them by phone, a limited callout was initiated and they were located at Mickledore. They were unhurt and able to walk down.


Incident started at 17:02 and ended at 00:51 making 7.8 hrs in total. There were 11 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 210 069. Total rescuer hours: 86
