Lost Walkers on Cader Idris

At around 4:15 p.m. on Monday 2nd Dec, call-handlers from Aberdyfi Search & Rescue Team were made aware of two lost walkers on Cader Idris.

The couple from South Wales had set out from Minffordd to scale the mountain, but navigational mistakes meant that they descended the mountain on the wrong side. Consequently, as darkness started to fall they were unsure of their location and called for help.

The pair were located using the PhoneFind protocol to quiz their phone for location data, and were located on open ground to the south of Dolgellau. A small party of Team volunteers was dispatched to meet the walkers and escort them safely off the hill. Everyone was back at vehicles by 6:40 p.m.
