Latest Incident

Saturday 13 October 2018 - North ridge of Tryfan

Two males requested help whilst climbing the North Ridge due to poor visibility and deteriorating weather. On speaking to them the Team Leader discovered they had both a GPS and a map. They were reluctant to move but he encouraged them to use the GPS and map to descend slowly and carefully, calling them periodically for welfare checks. A small hill party met up with them 10. Mins from the road.

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.
