A call was received from Cumbria Police from the partner of a lone walker. The walker had taken ill on the descent after summiting Scafell Pike to photograph the Aurora.
The Team Leader made contact and it was agreed to monitor progress carefully via Phonefind location and further discussion. Thankfully the walker’s condition improved later in the descent and he was able to make his own way to the valley and then home without the team being called out. We wish him well.

Incident started at 02:39 and ended at 09:42 making 7.1 hrs in total. There was 1 Wasdale team member involved and the incident occured at NY215072. Total rescuer hours: 7
