Climber captures 100-metre Snowdon fall on camera

A climber has captured his terrifying descent after he fell while climbing Snowdon.

Mark Roberts, 47, a safety consultant and lifelong climber was climbing with two companions on February 24.

He had reached the Parsley Fern Lefthand Gully when he was hit by a chunk of falling ice. The impact caused him to fall down a steep gully, losing his ice axes in the process.

The entire fall was recorded on a camera mounted to Mr Roberts' helmet.

He was taken to hospital in Bangor following a rescue by the Llanberis Mountain Rescue team and the crew of an RAF helicopter from RAF Valley on Anglesey.
