At 1900hrs on Sat 12th Aug 2017, Val TL received a call from duty WO MRS Phone that Llanberis MRT required assistance with 3 crag fast walkers on the ridge of Crib Goch. They had transitioned themselves part way over the ridge but then became uneasy on the steep terrain and could not continue. Info received was that the individuals were uninjured but quickly becoming cold.

Llanberis MRT had 5 team members currently on scene with the casualties but required further assistance setting up anchors for potential lowering of the individuals. Val TL plus 4 other team members deployed to the scene carrying ropes and rigging kit to set up anchors where required.

At approx. 2100hrs, the casualties had been short roped down to the position where Valley team members were and lowering of the individuals began. The whole process was smooth and quick and the casualties were back in Llanberis base for a debrief by 2245hrs.

Val team members then returned back to the weekend FOB for R&R.
