Man dies after falling from mountain in Snowdonia

A man has died after falling from a mountain in Snowdonia.

The man, believed to be 23 years old, died after a rock he was using as a handhold broke away as he climbed up the range's Griben Ridge in the Glyderau part of the mountain range on Sunday (February 4). He was with two other men at the time.

Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue Organisation said the man fell a "considerable distance". A recovery mission was launched but the man died from his injuries.

Reporting the incident on Facebook, the rescue service said: "Three young men were ascending the Gribin ridge when a handhold broke away causing one to fall a considerable distance.

"Sadly, he did not survive his injuries, the recovery continued through to Sunday lunchtime with the help of the Coastguard rescue helicopter.

"The thoughts of all team members are with the casualties family and friends."
