The 58 year old man was following the Glyndwr Way north towards the town when he slipped and badly injured his right ankle.
The walker had been able to supply an accurate grid reference for his location and so Team members living and working close by were quickly on scene. They were able to assess and reasure the casualty as members from further afield arrived and the appropriate equipment was brought to the location.
The man was given pain relief before being carried by stretcher to an awaiting Team Landrover and driven down to meet an ambulance in Machynlleth. Everyone was down off the hill by 8:00 p.m.
