/ Snowdonia rescue: Climber dies after 100ft fall
Gutting , had an epic myself yesterday. Made me think a lot about the dangers.
Thoughts again with family and his friends.
Thoughts are with his friends and family.
Lets hope the rest of the weekend is quieter for the MR teams.
A lot of us have mates in wales ATM, I was heading up there Sunday but after reading the conditions reports and the MRT overview on that page I'm not sure conditions are worth the risk. Watching with great interest now until I hear off my mate who'd have been in the kitchen today <I'm praying he'd have escaped the crowds and gone to the ladders instead>
Extremely distressing and saddening news. 2013 has been an extremely cruel year.
A very very sad and shocking event that really puts into perspective how dangerous conditions can be.There is very little consolidation of the snowpack on routes in Cneifion; powder snow with a thin frozen crust in most places. Please be careful out there.
My thoughts and condolences to family and friends.
Sad day, unfortunate enough to be one of the first on the scene, sadly was a fallen walker.
Thoughts go out to the family.
Supported by the report on the Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue web site: http://www.ogwen-rescue.org.uk/incidents/incidents.php (incident number 41).
Sincere condolences to family & friends of the deceased.
