Gt Langdale to Scafell

Incident Report #47 2001

A man in his 30's was reported overdue from his walk to Scafell. His car was located at the Old Dungeon Ghyll car park. An extensive search, in very high winds, was carried out with help from SARDA, Kewsick MRT and Wasdale MRT. All reasonable areas had been covered by 2am, so the search was suspended to await daylight. The search recommenced early next morning and the man was located, alive and well, near Cam Spout, having lost his compass and been unable to find his way back.
