A call was received about two walkers and a dog who were stuck on the large boulders on the lakeshore path.
A foot party and a boat party were deployed as the Team Leader was unable to contact the walkers to find out what breed of dog they had, and how big. A large dog would be impossible to carry safely across the boulder fields.
The party was located, warmed up and then taken across the lake by boat to the road where more team members were located to act as a reference point. A taxi picked them up to return them to their accommodation and the team returned to base.

Incident started at 17:13 and ended at 20:31 making 3.3 hrs in total. There were 19 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 153046. Total rescuer hours: 63
