We were alerted by Cumbria Police to a party of six walkers who had taken a wrong turn on Scafell Pike. A Phone Find located the party and they were given some advice by the Team Leader to direct them in the right direction. Due to the poor weather conditions the team were also called out and they successfully intercepted the party and provided some rewarming, before escorting them down to safety in the valley.
Incident started at 01:21 and ended at 06:10 making 4.8 hrs in total. There were 8 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 211 071. Total rescuer hours: 38
