Whilst part way through the previous callout the team was alerted to another walker who had injured her knee, this time on the Foxes path, near the top of Cadair Idris. Two team members left the initial party to return up and over the mountain to give assistance. When the rest of the team had reached the valley they drove round to Ty Nant on the north side of the mountain, re-packed their equipment and walked up to stretcher off this casualty, down some difficult and loose terrain. The team received valuable and very welcome assistance from volunteers of the South Snowdonia Rescue Team on this callout. Team members then returned home after their long day and double ascent/descent!
The team were called out early in the morning to a member of a group who had been camping on the summit of Cadair Idris. He had injured his ankle the previous evening. Low cloud and poor visibility meant the team used 4x4 vehicles to get as high on the mountain as possible, before starting the walk up. The casualty, in considerable pain, was treated and loaded onto the stretcher and carried from the summit hut to the roadhead for onward transport to hospital.
