Latest Incident

Sunday 19 August 2018 - Senior's Ridge

Two walkers became lost and stuck on the lower part of Seniors Ridge in cloudy conditions. Although the cloud lifted and SARLOC placed them on easy ground at the edge of the Nameless Cwm they felt unable to extract themselves. A small hill party walked up and then walked them down.

Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue CIO

Technical Rigging for Rescue. Tryfan as a backdrop

Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue CIO (OVMRO), or Sefydliad Achub Mynydd Dyffryn Ogwen as we are known in the native Welsh language, is a voluntary mountain rescue team responding to incidents in the mountains and valleys surrounding the Ogwen Valley, Glyderau and Carneddau mountain ranges and surrounding area in northern Snowdonia. We are on-call 24 hours a day, throughout the year.

 

Training is an essential part of team life

Our team is made up entirely of volunteers who have a wide variety of day jobs. Team members are all mountaineers with vast local knowledge and first aid training. Many have expertise in casualty care, advanced first aid, emergency driving and water rescue.

 

 

 

Rescue training in the Glyderau mountains

We are all proud of the voluntary tradition of the mountain search and rescue service. We are a registered charity and rely on donations to run our life-saving public service.

 

 

 

 

 

Night-time operations

There is much work to be done in raising funds to support the work we do. Annual running costs are in the region of £65,000.
