Two team vehicles collected the crew and transported them to her house via the back road through Llanrhychwyn whilst another team member was able to access Trefriw from the north. The crew treated the lady and then she was taken back to the ambulance in the team vehicle for admission to hospital.

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.

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.
