The 31-year-old was rescued from Ben Nevis on Monday night wearing no waterproof trousers and no head torch.
John Stevenson, leader of Lochaber Mountain Rescue Team, said when the man was found he was wearing just one trainer, his trousers were ripped from where he had slid on the 4409ft-high mountain and that he was suffering from the effects of cold.
