Accident on Tryfan


#1

I know he was a climber rather than a walker but a reminder to us all to take care on the mountains.

Hi Ron,
Wonderful response from the rescue services under very difficult conditions.
Thank you for the reminder.

In reply to GW4EVX:

I wonder if the guy was using the North Buttress Climb as a scramble as there is no mention of ropes, as there would have been if he was doing Grooved Arete, and it sounds like he finished up on Belle Vue Terrace. He is lucky to have survived!

A favourite mountain, and not to be trifled with even on a fine summers day.
