The OVMRO weather station has not reported any readings recently. This could be due to power or signal issues at our base.
Friday 22 March 2019 - Waterfall Gully, Tryfan
Party of two walkers ended up in Waterfall Gully on the North Ridge of Tryfan. They were unable to go down nor retrace their steps back up so called for help. Their location was confirmed with Phonefind and then a small hill party walked up to their location and brought them back down to the road. RAF Valley MRT had also attended Oggie Base as a back up.
Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue CIO
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.
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.
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.
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.
