Llanberis Mountain Rescue team has warned that "serious consideration" needs to be given to the management of Snowdon, the highest peak in England and Wales, after a record number of callouts last month.
The team, which is thought to be Britain's busiest, was called out 43 times in August, an increase on the previous record of 34 twelve months earlier.
Approximately 1,000 volunteer hours were spent attending incidents, including an RAF helicopter crash-landing on the summit of Yr Aran.
Most call-outs however, involved minor injuries to walkers on the slopes of Snowdon.
Some have also become stuck on the narrow Crib Goch ridge on the mountain, the scene of a number of tragedies.
