The male had started out from Minffordd but rather than taking the Minffordd path to the summit, he had followed a path around Llyn Cau and followed a path known locally as the "Stone Chute" up the steep and loose headwall of the valley.
Nearing the top section he reached an awkward and unappetising rocky outcrop which obstructs the path and became crag fast, suffering with a panic-attack and feeling unable to move up or down.
Call-handlers used phone-find technology to obtain an accurate position for the stranded man and a small hill-party was dispatched from Minffordd.
Once with the male, and having checked him over, team volunteers used confidence ropes to assist the walker back down the steep ground back to Llyn Cau. The walker was then accompanied back to Minffordd carpark.
Everyone was safely off the hill by 7:00 p.m.
