Two walkers were rescued after getting stuck on steep ground on Wales’s highest mountain.

The women called for help yesterday afternoon after getting lost on their way up Snowdon.

Llanberis Mountain Rescue Team was called out when the pair strayed off the Pyg Track in poor visibility and found themselves cragfast on rocky terrain.

The team used the Sarloc system, which uses a smartphone’s browser to send a location to rescuers, to pinpoint the women’s position, at the foot of the Trinity Face.

The team also requested help from Aberglaslyn and RAF Valley Mountain Rescue Teams with the rescue.

An Aberglaslyn MRT spokesperson said: “Luckily, the team’s assistance was not required as the Llanberis team was successful in locating and evacuating the pair to safety at Nant Peris.”
