2 walkers called police to say they were lost after nightfall. They had walked up Scafell Pike from Wasdale Head. Phonefind put them above Cam Spout Crag in Eskdale. GR NY 213055.
As they had very limited battery life on their phone, and no torches, the team leader decided against trying to talk them off and a limited callout was initiated.
A party of team members made their way to the location, arriving on scene just before midnight. They descended from above as the ground below the walkers was steep and craggy. The party were warmed up and walked off back to Eskdale where a taxi took them back to their car at Wasdale Head.
Incident started at 20:17 and ended at 03:14 making 7 hrs in total. There were 10 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 213055. Total rescuer hours: 70
