Injured man rescued from Snowdonia peak amid strong winds
A man has been rescued from a Snowdonia peak overnight after injuring his hip and leg while abseiling down a gully.
Mountain rescue teams from two bases were called to Craig yr Ysfa near Tal-y-Bont, Conwy county.
A helicopter from Caernarfon was unable to reach him due to strong winds so it flew rescuers to the base of the climb.
The man was carried to a team vehicle, transferred to an ambulance at about 02:15 BST on Sunday and taken to Ysbyty Gwynedd Hospital in Bangor.
