 20th March

 20.07

 Team alerted at 20:18hrs following a mis-directed callout to Llanberis MRT of two males lost in the Nantlle Ridge / Cwm Pennant area requesting assistance. Both have no food and water although the full extent of their equipment (lighting etc) and skills were not known. Irrespective of this fact, the pair called for MRT assistance.
No contact was possible since the initial call to NWP despite several attempts by co-ordinators and SARLOC messages being sent. A Grid Reference had been provided although this was treated as dubious and it would not correlate with what one would expect to see at this grid (lack of lighting etc).
Weather conditions although clear were bitterly cold (into the minuses), and it was clear that it would be inappropriate to expect the pair to bivvy down, particularly given that they have called for assistance in the first place. A rescue effort was therefore made to evacuate the pair from the hill.
Previous experience suggested that the likely scenario here is that the pair have descended down Tal-Y-Mignedd towards Mynydd Drws Y Coed and have peeled off too far to the right, dropping into Cwm Pennant and Beddgelert Forestry.
1 x MRT Mobile was deployed to Cwm Pennant to progress toward the car park at Beudu’r Ddol. The vehicle and crew will made noise / lights and see if any response could be gleaned through headtorches, mobile phone lights or otherwise.
Two lights were seen on the hill, and the team progressed towards the location and located the casualties safe and well. They were escorted back down the hill.
