This morning, the Team Leader took a call from Cumbria Police about two males who had become lost in poor visibility, close to the summit of Scafell Pike. Whilst the Team Leader was making initial contact with the pair a second group of males, whom were also lost appeared in the same location. The Team Leader was then able to talk both groups back to the summit path and eventually back down to the valley floor. The initial group informed Cumbria Police when they were back at their vehicles safely and thus the log could be closed.
Incident started at 07:36 and ended at 10:39 making 3.1 hrs in total. There was 1 Wasdale team member involved and the incident occured at NY 210071. Total rescuer hours: 3.1
