Two women were rescued from a scrambling route in Snowdonia after getting stuck.

Members of the Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue Organisation turned out yesterday after the pair became cragfast on a small ledge on the North Ridge of Tryfan.

The women called for help about 5.45pm after they turned round while scrambling up the route because of low cloud.

The pair lost the path while making their way back down the ridge and got stuck close to the Milestone Buttress near the bottom of the route.

Eleven members of the rescue team took part in the rescue, which involved a hill party roped the women and brought them to safety before accompanying them back down to the road.

The rescue took 3½ hours.
