We were called by Police around 05:20 about a group of 2 walkers on the 3 peaks who had become separated from their group and not seen since they were on Scafell Pike summit around 23:00 the night before. We decided to wait to give them a bit more time to make their own way off and around 07:30 one of the pair phoned in to say they were now making their way off the mountain. They got back to Wasdale at 08:15, a long night out. This was another incident caused by groups not sticking together.
Incident started at 05:20 and ended at 08:15 making 2.9 hrs in total.
