Incident Details:

An experienced walker was reported overdue following a night planned out wild camping by Sprinkling Tarn. His wife raised the alarm after he failed to arrive home on time which was unusual for him. Members from Keswick were called to assist Wasdale team who were already on the hill and we searched the Grains Gill and Sty Head paths. One of our team members quickly found him safe and well as he was descending the path from Styhead Tarn to Seathwaite where he had left his car. A call out with good intent.

7 team members - 2 hours
