A CLIMBER who fell while descending Mount Beerwah was helped from the mountain in a rescue operation involving firefighters, police, paramedics and a Lifesaver Rescue Helicopter crew. 

The man, in his 20s, was unable to get himself out of a treed area after falling on the mountain on Thursday afternoon. 

Emergency services were called in to help about 3.30pm. 

Firefighters were sent onto the mountain to search for the man and after finding him, were able to retrieve him. 

A spokeswoman for Queensland Fire and Emergency Services said firefighters "had to use ropes to conduct the rescue".

The patient was walked off the mountain and met by paramedics in the car park on Mount Beerwah Rd just before 8pm. 

The man was not assessed by paramedics.
