A couple expressed concern for a party seen to be struggling to descend from the NE Ridge of Y Garn. However the party had declined assistance and it seemed that others were walking up to help them. Their lights could be seen slowly descending towards Cwm Idwal so it was decided that no team action would be taken unless they asked directly for help. False alarm with good intent.

A party of 2 reported themselves lost whilst trying to walk around Moel Siabod. They had left Pont Cyfyng about 9am but then had strayed as they reached the South Ridge and ended up above Llynau Dirwaunydd. Unfortunately the team leader could not establish any comms with the group and had to wait for them to ring 999 again for an update. A team member in the area volunteered to drive up through the forestry to locate them but they were already down on the road at Roman Bridge. They were given a lift back to their car.

Report of lights

A member of the public reported a stationary light on the side of Conwy Mountain and was concerned someone may need help. A team member went to investigate but the light disappeared before he reached the location. Stand down.

Walking

A lady was blown over by the strong winds as she started down the path from Llyn Idwal outflow. This caused a knee injury and meant she was unable to walk so a passer by went to the Warden centre to request help as mobile phone signal was poor. Team members were on scene within the hour with a stretcher and carried her back to the carpark so that her friend could then take her to hospital.
2 Y Gully Tryfan

Two female walkers had climbed most of the way up the North Ridge of Tryfan and had then been given directions by a passing group who carried on ahead of them. They lost sight of the group and decided it was best to retreat but unfortunately strayed into Y Gully on the West Face. The ground became more difficult and they realised they needed assistance so called 999. As the team assembled at Oggie Base the Coastguard Helicopter went to assess the situation and luckily were able to winch them from the gully and drop them off at Oggie Base.
