Response to February Accidents/Rescues

 

A Welsh Assembly member who is also a keen mountain climber is calling for better safety warnings following the death of a man on Snowdon.

Mr Pugh's plea came after Jason Jones, aged 20, from Llanrug, near Caernarfon, died after falling in treacherous conditions near the top of the north Wales mountain range.

It is understood that although the mountain was covered in snow and thick ice, Mr Jones was wearing training shoes instead of boots suitable for the conditions

Mr Jones was in a party of four when he fell between 500 and 700 feet from the peak on Saturday.
