A well-equipped party of 4 walkers had climbed Tryfan then continued up the Bristly Screes to the summit of Glyder Fach. Their original intention was to continue to either the Gribin or the Devil's Kitchen to descend, however they were concerned about running out of daylight so tried to find a shorter route down. Unfortunately they strayed onto the steep ground on the north of Glyder Fach and scrambled down until they could go no further due to cliffs. The Coastguard helicopter was already training in the Ogwen Valley and were tasked to the incident but could not winch from the cas location due to severe turbulence. They flew team members to the top of Main Gully and they were then able to descend to the cragfast walkers, rope them back up the gully and walk them off the mountain.

A male, walking in the forest above Betws y Coed, slipped and sustained a painful knee injury. He was unable to walk so his friends asked for assistance. Team vehicles were able to drive to within 50m of the casualty site, so he was splinted and then carried on a stretcher to the vehicles. The original plan was then to transfer the casualty to a WAST ambulance but it was decided that it would be quicker to transport him to the hospital in the team vehicle.
