Corridor Route (108)

Callout Date: 27/10/2022
Callout Time: 6:20 pm
Agencies Involved: Keswick MRT

Two separate parties of walkers reached the summit of Scafell Pike together and decided to descend together. Part way down the Corridor Route they became unsure of the exact route down. They didn’t feel they wanted to climb the difficult step and having tried to descend a little they decided to back track. They quickly became benighted and decided to call Mountain Rescue while they had good reception. A SARLOC phone find message gave their precise location on the Corridor Route. The night was fortunately mild but it was also very wet as seven team members climbed up from Seathwaite to find the party of eight. The group was walked down to their vehicles at Seathwaite without incident.

13 team members – 4 hours 40 minutes
