A MAN from the West Midlands became the second person from across the border to be rescued from Snowdonia in the space of 24 hours.

Following an incident on Sunday evening, Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue Organisation (OVMRO) volunteers were called shortly after 8.30am on Monday morning to reports of the lone man, who was stranded on the West Place of Tryfan.

According to a spokesperson, the man had "made an early start to take photographs of Cwm Bochlwyd above the Ogwen Valley".

The spokesperson added: "He was lightly dressed (jeans) and wearing trainers. He scrambled up onto the West Face to get better views then found himself cragfast in a wet gully in the shade. Five team members were deployed, one to spot from the A5 road in the valley below and four to climb above the man.

"A team member was lowered on ropes to the “casualty”. Both were then hauled back up. The cold and wet man was then escorted from the mountain to his car, three hours after his call. He was made aware of the well publicised concerns of Mountain Rescue."
