Internet map couple get lost on Snowdon

Gwyn Roberts of Llanberis mountain rescue team has issued a warning to people out walking over Snowdon that they should not simply rely on advice from the internet if they are to successfully navigate the mountain.

His call comes in today's www.dailypost.co.uk which reports that a couple became stuck in cloud on Snowdon because they were relying on an internet route map for their bearings - but had no map or compass.

Gwyn says: “Snowdon is a physical, not a virtual, mountain.”
