HELP REQUIRED FROM ANY EARLY RISERS TODAY!!
We have just returned from a very intense rescue on the PYG track and one of our members had his bag blown down the mountain. It was lost from the point shown with the red dot [SH60985491] and likely could be anywhere on or below the Zig-Zags just before Bwlch Glas.
