At around 12:40, call handlers for the Team were alerted to an injured man on Cribin Fawr, around 2 km south of Bwlch Oerddrws on the A470 between Dolgellau and Dinas Mawddwy.
One of party of 11 walkers had slipped and injured his leg such that he could no longer walk. Mountain Rescue volunteers started to make their way from the A470 along the ridge line to make contact with the group, and the Coastguard helicopter, R936, was dispatched to assist. The helicopter was able to quickly locate the group and the injured man and partner were uplifted and transferred to Ysbwyty Gwynedd for hospital based assessment and care.
The remaining party, well equipped and in good spirits, were walked off the hill by team members.
