The man, in his 70's, and his wife were descending off the mountain and were near the top of the Minffordd steps when he tripped, hitting his head on a rock. A passing walker treated the head wound and called 999 for assistance.
As the wider Team assembled at the Minffordd carpark, a hasty party reached the casualty and assessed his injuries. It was agreed that the casualty could be walked back down with assistance of team members, but the remaining team members remained ready to carry up extra equipment should the hill party require further assistance.
Having made it down safely, the couple were provided with advice about what to do should the man start to feel any delayed ill effects of his ordeal.
Once happy that the couple were fit to make their way home, the Team stood down at 6:30 p.m.
