160827 Cummenapeasta Callout 1Kerry Mountain Rescue Team have assisted a walker who got into difficulty on Macgillycuddy’s Reeks.

Yesterday evening at around 6:30, twenty members of the team were called to the assistance of a man in his 30’s on Cummenapeasta Ridge.

Low fog on the ridge prevented the Coast Guard Helicopter reaching the walker directly.

Instead, the helicopter lifted Team members and equipment up to Lough Cummenapeasta, from where the Team climbed up onto the ridge.

The walker was given first aid treatment and walked off the mountain.
