A climber was rescued after falling at a popular climbing crag.
Two mountain rescue teams responded to the call for help after the 62-year-old Sheffield man fell between 4 and 5m on a route at Stoney Middleton in the Peak District.
Edale Mountain Rescue Team was joined by colleagues from the Buxton team at 3.30pm yesterday, Friday.
The climber was on a route to the side of the Minus 10 wall when a handhold came loose and landed on a small ledge.
An Edale team paramedic and two other members climbed a diagonal gully to reach the man on the ledge and treated him for his injuries, while a second group of rescuers made its way to the top of the crag and set up a rope system past the fallen climber.
A stretcher was then brought up to the climber on the rope system.
Charlie Bartlett of the Edale team said: “After carefully securing the casualty on the stretcher, treating for potential spinal and pelvic injuries, he was lowered to the ground and evacuated a few hundred metres down the track to the ambulance for onward transport to hospital.”
