Wastwater Screes

A call was received from Cumbria Police about 2 walkers who had got stuck on the Screes lakeshore path alongside Wastwater. They were uninjured, so a small group of team members were deployed to help them across the boulder fields and off the hill.
It can be difficult going at the best of times, but the rain would have made it more so.
The photographs show that there isn’t actually a “path” in places!

Incident started at 19:51 and ended at 22:48 making 3 hrs in total. There were 5 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY153047. Total rescuer hours: 15
