A climber was airlifted to hospital yesterday after falling 100m (328ft) in Snowdonia.

The man was leading an ice climb on Ysgolion Duon on the north face of Carnedd Dafydd when the incident occurred about 2.30pm on Thursday. Members of the Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue Organisation were called to help and a helicopter from RAF Valley airlifted the climber to the Ysbyty Gwynedd in Bangor.

Members of the rescue team were on the mountain until midnight last night.

A spokesperson for the North Wales Police said: “The man has been airlifted to Ysbyty Gwynedd in Bangor with ankle injuries.

“The man was climbing with another man who was uninjured, and mountain rescue members are assisting with walking him down the mountain.”

The climber, who has not been named, is believed also to have suffered an injury to his arm in the fall.
