Slight Side, Scafell

We were called by Police about a walker who had reported himself lost whilst walking on Scafell, probably located somewhere near Slight Side. Initially the team leader tried to provide directions over the phone but when these were not successful a small team had to go onto the mountain to help recover the lost walker. He was duely found on the summit of Horn Crag and walked back to Wasdale.

Incident started at 13:21 and ended at 22:00 making 8.7 hrs in total. There were 5 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 210 050 (altitude 749 m). Total rescuer hours: 44
