The 25 year old, from Exeter, had attended a social event in the area, but had decided to get away. Finding himself up on steep ground with very little idea of where he was, the man had ultimately called for mountain rescue. He believed himself to be on Cadair Idris but was only able to give the vaguest idea of his location.
Search parties were deployed to the most likely spots, whilst call handlers tried to make sense of the available information, with an intermittent phone signal allowing for some further questioning of the man. Team vehicles were deployed to open areas to sound sirens, and eventually the casualty was able to spot the Landrover. With the options greatly narrowed down, the Team was quickly able to identify the man's position, and gather him up, unharmed, from the hillside.
