A walker has died after falling from a ridge in Snowdonia.

The man, in his 30s, was with two others attempting to descend Crib Goch on Saturday when he fell.

Llanberis Mountain Rescue Team, which was called out late in the morning after being alerted to the incident, said he fell a significant distance from the grade-one scrambling route.

The group had decided to come down the route, part of the Snowdon Horseshoe, because of worsening weather.

The Caernarfon Coastguard helicopter joined 15 volunteer team members in the operation to reach the fallen walker. A Llanberis MRT spokesperson said: “We are sad to report that the walker did not survive the fall.

“Our thoughts are with the family and friends of our fellow hill-goer.”
