Second call out for Caernarfon Coastguard helicopter to cragfast climber in Snowdonia (with footage)


From the Anglesey coast and then off the mountains in Snowdonia...

The UK Coastguard search and rescue helicopter based at Caernarfon was called out for a second time yesterday (Thursday 14 July 2016) to airlift a cragfast climber at Glyder Fach in Snowdonia, Wales.

Only hours earlier, the helicopter crew had rescued an injured coasteering teenager from Anglesey and were called out again at 3.15pm after North Wales Police reported the cragfast climber.

The climber was dressed appropriately, had good battery life and food and water, but was unable to move any further from the mountain.

The climber was airlifted to safety and taken to the waiting Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue Team.  The climber did not require any medical treatment.
