Mountain safety – beware bad mountain in the ‘summer’

A timely report of incidents attended by Welsh mountain rescue teams emphasises how important it is for people to plan carefully and be prepared for the worst when heading up into the mountains.  A reminder that the British ‘summer’ weather is far from predictable and as ever good mountain safety would do well to follow the old adage, “Hope for the best, prepare for the worst”.  Thankfully all down safely but a reminder of the importance of good field safety planning and worth a quick read of the full story from UKC of how a group of nine people had to be rescued from Crib Goch in bad weather.
