ricky k on Eagle Mountain, 2004
by ricky k  14 Oct 2004
The kids rescued on Eagle Mtn a few weekends back were indeed innocents led by the foolhardy.They succumbed whilst descending towards Leitrim Lodge having actually reached the summit. I was enjoying the "appalling" conditions on the summit when they appeared in dribs and drabs out of the murk dressed as though they were going to a school disco. I was very surprised to find only one adult to 34 kids. I was out by myself that afternoon having trekked from the other side of the mountain and have kicked myself ever since that a), I didn't have a stern word with the teacher involved and b), helped the guy out in what, with hindsight, was a rapidly worsening situation.The annoying thing is that they should not have been on the hill at all. One prior look at a weather forecast and a quick equipment check should have told their teacher all he needed to know. I am extremely glad that no-one died. With any luck, the authorities will ensure that this does not happen in the future. I will certainly be more assertive if I ever have the misfortune of coming across a similar situation. I fully subscribe to the self suffiency ethic of hill walking but I also think now that it is our duty to intervene when someone is plainly out of their depth.
