The body of a walker has been found by a passer-by on a Snowdonia mountain.

A local man was making his way up the North Ridge of Tryfan when he made the discovery.

The walker, in his mid-60s, was found on the lower section of the ridge, below Waterfall Gully.

It is believed he had gone walking the previous day. Chris Lloyd of the Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue Organisation said it was obvious to the passer-by that the walker was dead.

He said the man had a head injury, suggesting he had fallen.

The team was called out about 10.20am on Tuesday after the police were alerted.

Mr Lloyd said: “As it was a midmorning, weekday rescue, we called upon RAF Valley MRT who were training in the area.

“The casualty was stretchered off the mountain with help from the RAF team, and taken by team Land Rover to hospital at Ysbyty Gwynedd where he was pronounced dead.

“Team members carried out an investigation of the incident site on behalf of North Wakes Police and the coroner.”
