A man has died after collapsing on Wales’s highest mountain.

Emergency services were alerted this afternoon after the man was reported to be unconscious on the Snowdon Ranger Path near the summit of the Snowdon subsidiary peak Clogwyn Du’r Arddu.

Llanberis Mountain Rescue Team was called out and requested assistance from the neighbouring Aberglaslyn team at 2.30pm because of the severity of the incident.

A search and rescue Sea King helicopter from RAF Valley on Anglesey was also scrambled but could not reach the site because of low cloud and poor weather conditions.

The man was stretchered by mountain rescue team members from the mountain to Llyn Ffynnon-y-gwas and from there was taken to Ysbyty Gwynedd in Bangor.

An Aberglaslyn MRT spokesperson said: “Sadly, the casualty was pronounced dead upon his arrival.

“The team’s condolences go out to the male’s family and friends at this difficult time.”
