Happy to be back at the vehicles

The team was contacted by the police to assist a pair of walkers who were stuck at the boulder field on the Wast Water Screes path. A limited callout was made and team members  walked to their location from the south-western end of the lake. The walkers had a large dog with them that would not continue over the loose, slippery boulders so they were walked back to the north-eastern end of the lake, a much easier, if longer walk. This is the second dog rescue from the screes in six months (see here for the other one).
