Due to poor visibility the hillwalker became uncertain of the safest route off the summit and made the decision of calling in Mountain Rescue before darkness fell. Mountain Rescue established rescue base on the Aughavannagh side of the mountain and were able to pinpoint his position close to the South Prison through the use of S.A.R.L.O.C. A hill party was then sent in to his location and once they reached him, they checked to see that he was good to walk out. He was escorted down off the mountain to safety.
Mountain Rescue would like to thank all agencies involved.
