We were called by Police about a walker reporting himself lost after descending Scafell Pike, probably somewhere in Eskdale. It was difficult to obtain more precise information on his whereabouts until his Girlfriend rang in to say she was tracking him on the ‘Find my iPhone’ app and had a position for us. A small team went on the fell and helped walk him back to Eskdale.

Incident started at 17:55 and ended at 23:00 making 5.1 hrs in total. There were 5 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY21387 04582 (altitude 490 m). Total rescuer hours: 26
