A man and a woman have been rescued on Snowdon today after they fell whilst scrambling. They were on the Cribyn ridge when the 65 year old man from Cumbria, took a 20 ft tumble. He fell into a 30 year old woman from Birmingham, who then slipped 30 ft.
The Llanberis Mountain rescue team - along with an RAF rescue helicopter from Valley - helped get the pair to a hospital in Bangor. Their injuries aren't believed to be serious.
It was a bit of a tight squeeze at the top of Mount Snowdon on Monday, as hundreds of people made the most of the Bank Holiday sunshine. Queues formed around the summit, as people paused to pose for photos at the top.
With 360,000 walkers climbing the summit every year, Snowdon is easily Wales' busiest mountain. But critics say her popularity puts other attractions in Snowdonia National Park in the shade and gives mountain rescue teams a stressful summer. Lorna Prichard reports.
The British Mountaineering Council (BMC) says the climber who filmed himself falling around 100 metres on Snowdon probably survived because he was wearing a helmet.
It also praised the reaction of Mark Roberts' friends after he fell.
Accidents do happen, but Mark was well equipped, wearing a helmet, and that probably saved his life.
The other climbers in the area did exactly the right thing. His friend dialled 999 and asked for the police as soon as they saw the fall, and he was lucky in that two members of the mountain rescue were climbing nearby.
The team got to him within 30 minutes. Of course, we always try to be fast, but this time we were quicker than usual!

"There was no feeling of panic, more a concerted effort to protect my head and neck and be aware of what was below me, where I was heading and what I could do to slow and stop myself before I got to the more serious rocky outcrops".
"I was a little dazed but, critically, not unconscious. Interestingly, I had the foresight to check the cam was still attached and just hoped the vid had recorded that: it wasn’t one for repeating!"
