Geograph / Ian Greig

An inquest has been opened and adjourned into the death of a hill walker in the Ogwen Valley.

The body of Mark Jenner from Circenster, Gloucestershire was discovered by a fell runner on the north ridge of Tryfan last Tuesday morning (29th May).

It’s believed the 56 year-old died the day before after suffering a head injury in a fall. Mr Jenner’s body was recovered by a mountain rescue team and taken to Ysbyty Gwynedd in Bangor.

The hearing in Ruthin was told a post-mortem examination had determined head and chest trauma as a provisional cause of death.

North Wales east and central coroner John Gittins adjourned the full inquest until a later date.
