Wasdale Mountain Rescue Team was called by police on Thursday (18 Oct) after two walkers were reported to be stuck on the rock face overlooking Mickledore by a passer-by.

A Wasdale MRT spokesman said: “Following a phone conversation with the original informant and speaking with people who’d descended via Mickledore It was later confirmed to be the Broad Stand area.

“Once on scene one walker was found just above the difficult step of Broad Stand whilst their friend had managed to make it down onto the slab below.

“Both were now cragfast.

“The walker above the step was brought back up and then lowered down via the abseil point whilst the lower walker was lowered all the way to the bottom.

“They were then walked down to Brackenclose, then taken back to their vehicle in Eskdale.”
