On friday as I headed back into the pass on the short drive up from Bournemouth, I saw the Llanberis Mountain Rescue Team landrover complete with passenger in the cromlech lay by. A few member of the rescue team had taken it upon themselves to clear the debris of the caravan from the pass. In the last couple of weeks heavy rain and strong winds had spread the remains down the pass.
The National Park, had said it wasn’t their responsibility, however having heard of the teams decision to take the matter into its own hands, and probably embarrassed by the volunteers taking a lead, decided to send a small team of wardens. This was helped along by Plas Y Brenin who gave one of its water rescue specialist a day to help out as well.
I did find it funny that the volunteer rescue team basically took the lead in taking responsibility for the clear up, and would the National Park Authority have done anything if they hadn’t heard of their intentions?
