We were called by Police about 2 walkers reporting themselves lost whilst descending Scafell Pike. Given the number of incidents being dealt with this was passed to our colleagues in Duddon & Furness Team, but Wasdale members on the other job continued to look for both parties. Despite the best efforts of both teams the walkers managed to make their own way off the fell and made themselves known at Brackenclose to a team vehicle.
Incident started at 18:40 and ended at 01:52 making 7.2 hrs in total. There were 15 Wasdale team members involved. Total rescuer hours: 108
