Tragically, a couple of fatalities within the space of three days recently, one on Tryfan, and one on Snowdon.
I was always frightened of Tryfan, and when I finally activated it last year, it was indeed rather scary, even through I took the safest and easiest approach. It was very easy to see though how one wrong move could have terrible consequences.
The Snowdon incident is more of a puzzle though. The news report is very light on detail, so there will be much more to it one suspects, but I can’t think of any part of the Pyg Track route that is exposed to such danger. I’m wondering if, in fact, the accident was elsewhere, like Crib Goch, and the body came to rest in the vicinity of the Pyg Track.
Jimmy and I head back to Snowdonia for some more uniques at the end of the month. Stay safe out there everyone.
