Number 12 of the year.
Just before 8.00pm last night we were requested alongside Brecon Mountain Rescue Team to assist
Western Beacons Mountain Search and Rescue Team in the rescue of 2 walkers who’d become stuck on an icy section of gulley above the Llyn y Fan Fach lake in the western Brecon Beacons.
Helicopter support from Maritime and Coastguard Agency #StAthan airlifted team members to the summit of Bannau Sir Gaer where, in temperatures well below minus double-figures with windchill, a rope system was set up to access the walkers and raise them to the top. Very cold but otherwise unharmed, they were airlifted to the roadside.
