We were called by Police about a group of 4 walkers reporting themselves lost whilst descending Scafell Pike, probably in Eskdale. Given the good over night weather and lack of precise position it was decided to leave them until the morning and see if they made their own way out, which they ultimately did.
Incident started at 04:08 and ended at 10:46 making 6.6 hrs in total. There was 1 Wasdale team member involved. Total rescuer hours: 7
