Two walkers became cragfast on the North Ridge of Tryfan when they had tried to re-trace their steps down the mountain. They stopped on a small ledge on steep ground and rang for help. A poor phone signal complicated the initial stages of the rescue, but the couple were finally spotted and a small hill party were able to rope them onto safer ground for the walk down.
Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue Organisation
Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue Organisation (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 £100,000.
