The family of a climber who died shielding his wife from a mountain rockfall at Yosemite National Park in California, say he will "always be our hero" for saving her.
Andrew and Lucy Forster, from Cardiff, were celebrating their first wedding anniversary while on a walking and climbing trip when tragedy struck.
A huge slab of rock crashed down from the El Capitan peak last Wednesday killing Andrew, 32, and severely wounding 28-year-old Lucy.
Family members have said she was saved by Andrew using his body to shield her.
Describing every morning as a 'bad dream', Andrew's family have spoken for the first time since his death.
In a statement they said:
Lucy's family said sales rep Andrew 'was the man of her dreams'.
The couple married in a yurt in August 2016 and spent months preparing for the climbing holiday to America with a series of climbs in Wales and the Peak District as well as training at an indoor climbing centre.
They flew out for the trip from Heathrow on September 11 and had spent two weeks at the National Park.
On their return from America they planned to travel around the Alps for a year "skiing, climbing and being extreme" and had bought a van for the journey.
