As day one of the search for the previous callout was ongoing, a further call was received from Cumbria Police. Two walkers had become crag fast close to the top of the Screes and were not able to safely progress. They had wisely called for help at that point. The team deployed with rope and other crag equipment and were able to secure and then assist the walkers to the safety of the ridge summit.

Incident started at 17:51 and ended at 23:39 making 5.8 hrs in total. There were 16 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 156042. Total rescuer hours: 93
