A couple became disorientated while descending the corridor route from Scafell Pike. Overcome by the darkness, and further hampered with broken footwear, the couple decided that they were unable to continue and called Mountain Rescue for help. A small team was dispatched with a spare pair of shoes to locate the couple and walk them down. With some warm clothing, food and a change of footwear, the uninjured couple were able to walk down with the team to Seathwaite. They were then driven to Keswick where a taxi was waiting to take them back to their accommodation in Bowness.
