Slight Side, Scafell

We were later called by Police about 2 walkers who’d become lost whilst descending Scafell Pike. It was originally thought they might be near the Corridor Route but with help from Sarloc they were located on Slight Side nr Scafell. A small team then went up to help walk them off the mountain, followed by a long ride back to Seathwaite.

Incident started at 14:46 and ended at 19:00 making 4.2 hrs in total. There were 6 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 21419 04365 (altitude 441 m). Total rescuer hours: 25
