Whilst carrying out a mountain training day in the Tryfan area, Cpl Obree + 3 were requested by a party of OVMRO to assist in the search and rescue of a crag-fast climber heard shouting for help on the Milestone Buttress area of Tryfan. The incident had been reported by a party of 4 USAF personnel that were also training in the area. Cpl Obree and his party moved towards the Water-pipe gully area where OVMRO troops were now on scene. Upon his arrival, the climber was lowered to safety and escorted back to OVMRO base for debriefing. Cpl Obree subsequently escorted the USAF personnel back to their vehicles and returned to routine training.
