The Team Leader was alerted by Cumbria Police regarding a lone walker who had lost the path and become disorientated on the summit plateau and needed assistance. Phonefind was used once again to gain an accurate location and then he was directed back to the summit, where he quickly met up with other walkers. They kindly walked him down to the valley floor, and we give our thanks to them.
It’s a good reminder that the summit plateau can be a hostile place in poor weather even in the Summer so a good reminder to bring a map and compass and have the skills to take a bearing onto the path you intend to take.

Incident started at 09:05 and ended at 15:54 making 6.8 hrs in total. There was 1 Wasdale team member involved and the incident occured at NY 214 071. Total rescuer hours: 7
