Man plunges 60ft from a ridge in Snowdonia

A 42-year-old man has been seriously injured after plunging around 60ft from a ridge in Snowdonia. The climber was in a group of four descending Crib y Ddysgl when he fell early this morning. He was part of a team from Surrey and airlifted to hospital in Bangor.

They spent the night on Snowdon and were coming down Crib y Ddysgl when the accident happened.

It's just unfortunate - they were well equipped, the weather was fine and they weren't doing anything other groups usually do.
