We were called by Cumbria Police requesting assistance for a walker who had made some navigational errors after an early morning summit of Scafell Pike. Trying to descend back down to Wasdale, he had got onto some difficult ground to the West of Cam Spout Crag in Eskdale. Fortunately with the aid of an accurate Phonefind location he was able to be redirected by the Team Leader uphill to the ridge between Scafell and Slight Side. At this point our friends at Duddon and Furness successfully continued the ‘talk off’ to allow the Team Leader to attend pre-arranged medical training in base. Thanks to them for the cover provided once again.
