We were called by Police about a group of 4 walkers who were part of a larger team who had become separated and lost / stuck on Scafell Pike. Using the compass feature on their iPhone and with confirmation from Sarloc they were located close to the path from Scafell Pike summit to Mickledore and a small team went on the fell to help get them off. They were located at the expected position and then given warm clothing before being walked back down to the valley. The conditions were particularly challenging high on the mountain due to driving rain and strong winds.
Incident started at 14:00 and ended at 20:00 making 6 hrs in total. There were 12 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 21305 07149 (altitude 917 m). Total rescuer hours: 72
