Oxford Mail: Oxford University hikers rescued in Snowdonia Oxford University hikers rescued in Snowdonia

Two teams of student hikers from Oxford University had to be rescued from mountains in Snowdonia over the weekend.

Four men and one woman who were rock climbing had to be led off the Tryfan mountain by the Ogwen Valley mountain rescue team on Saturday night.

They were rescued after the lead climber in the team suffered from cold and exhaustion.

Meanwhile, two men became stranded on the Lliwedd peak 15 miles away in the early hours of Sunday morning.

The duo were rescued at 4am during a four-hour overnight operation by the Llanberis mountain rescue team.

There were five rescues in total over the weekend as the temperature dropped and many hikers were unprepared for snow and ice.
