An inquest was today opened and adjourned following the death of a woman on the Idwal Slabs in Snowdonia.
Patricia Jillian Cowie was found by rescuers from the Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue Organisation on Monday evening, after climbers nearby reported seeing the walker fall past them on the crags on Glyder Fawr. The 47-year-old, from Llanfairfechan, is believed to have fallen 210m (700ft) to her death.
A Sea King helicopter from RAF Valley on Anglesey joined in the search for Ms Cowie, along with members of the Search and Rescue Dogs Association. Her body was found at the foot of the crags about three hours after the climbers reported the incident.
North-west Wales coroner Dewi Pritchard Jones opened the inquest this morning and adjourned the hearing to a later date.
