We were called by Police about 2 walkers reporting themselves lost somewhere on Scafell Pike. On further investigation it turned out this was the same group who had called the previous night and been handled by Keswick Team and ended up spending the night in their tent. Using Sarloc their position was established as near the head of Piers Gill and they were given directions by the team leader over the phone. They subsequently made their own way off the mountain.
Incident started at 09:05 and ended at 12:30 making 3.4 hrs in total. There was 1 Wasdale team member involved and the incident occured at NY21303 07848 (altitude 715 m). Total rescuer hours: 3.4
