We were alerted by Cumbria Police about 2 walkers who had got lost near the summit of Scafell Pike. The Team Leader was able to pinpoint their location using Phonefind and advised them to walk back up to the top in the hope of meeting other walkers who could help them down.
Fortunately, this turned out to be the case and they arrived back in the valley around 0440 the following morning. As requested, they let the police know they were off the hill safe and well.
Incident started at 22:45 and ended at 14:40 making 15.9 hrs in total. There was 1 Wasdale team member involved and the incident occured at NY 212071. Total rescuer hours: 16
