A group of young campers who had to be rescued from Snowdonia last night in sub-zero conditions 'lacked the knowledge and experience' for their adventure, rescuers said today.
The three, from Shrewsbury, had gone for a walk on the north ridge and didn't have torches with them when darkness fell.
They became stuck near the Cannon Rock, 1,000ft high on Tryfan, before being led to safety by members of Ogwen mountain rescue team, who were on the mountain for more than six hours.
[They were] were very pleased to see us, cold but unharmed. They were young people seeking adventure and went up the mountain with the best intentions - but lacked knowledge and experience.
