Apparently happened in south gully, grade 3 scrambling territory, very sad.
Touching from a distance, further all the time.

I was on there the day after, a sombre reminder that that tryfan is as harsh as it is beautiful
We weren't born to just pay bills and die...

Very sad. I believe the body was found by a female walker and her sons. Very traumatic for them.

Just saw it on the news, North ridge once again, above Heather terrace.
What can one say, other than sincere sympathy to his distressed relatives.


According to the news, his relatives were there when his body was removed from above heather terrace.


It does not get more distressing than that.

A keen walker, possibly visiting beautiful Snowdonia for the first time.
A young climber as well.

Not the kind of news one wants to hear, especially when just about everything discussed on  the news nowdays, is ever so negative.


We never hear anything cheering now days.


Its just a reminder to us all, take great care, the mountains are there to be enjoyed.


Return safely.
