Two separate 999 calls were made from people reporting lights on Y Garn. The weather and mountain conditions that night were excellent with moonlight. With no other reports of people in distress, an informant was contacted and it became clear that the lights were moving with no obvious pattern to the lights. Given this, the operation was closed as a "false alarm with good intent"

incident photo Two climbers reported themselves stuck in the Central Gully area of Glyder Fach due to difficult snow conditions. Despite several hill parties being deployed, the team were unable to ether locate or make contact with the climbers due to the atrocious weather and dangerous snow conditions. The Coastguard helicopter also made several attempts to reach the climbers but was unable to do so due to low cloud on the mountains. The rescue was suspended in the early hours and then resumed at first light when LLMRT, RAF Valley MRT and Aberglaslyn MRT also sent teams on to the hill. Mid morning the cloud lifted and the Coastguard helicopter was able to winch the climbers from their precarious position, and then transport all the MRT members back to Oggie Base. On return to Oggie base the two climbers were found to be fit and well. They were well equipped and had dug themselves in when they realised that they were going to be stuck overnight. When daylight arrived the weather had abated, so they started to belay each other off the hill.
