The party, a father and 9 year old son, along with their 8 month old dog, had been attempting to reach the summit, but had turned back because of the extremely poor weather conditions. However whilst retracing their steps they missed the route down off the mountain and found themselves lost in low cloud and high wind amongst the scree and boulder-fields on the slopes of Cyfrwy. Realising the difficulty they were in, and their proximity to the cliff faces, they called for assistance.
With an approximate location determined from the initial request for help, a small party of Team volunteers made their way into the area and quickly located the party, aided greatly by the barking of the dog. A little shaken by the experience but otherwise uninjured, the group was given some food and extra clothing before being walked down off the mountain.
Everyone was safely off the hill by 6:15 p.m.
