The male, in his 60's, had spent the early part of the morning photographing aircraft flying the "Mach Loop". Around 10:00 a.m., and during the process of descending the crag to return to his car, the man slipped on the steep ground and injured his left ankle. Unable to weight-bear on the injured limb, the man called North Wales Ambulance Service for assistance. Due to the nature of the terrain, a request was made for the Team to assist.
Team volunteers deployed from Bwlch Oerddrws carpark to the casualty's location with stretcher and medical equipment. The casualty was assessed and the limb splinted prior to being loaded onto a stretcher for transportation back down the mountain.
Following a final assessment by team medics the male handed over to a family member for transportation to hospital in order to seek further assessment and treatment.
All team members were off the hill by 3:30 p.m.
