The climber was on a route near High Neb

A climber was airlifted to hospital after falling on a popular Peak District crag.

The man, in his 20s, was on a route on Stanage Edge yesterday when he had what rescuers called a significant fall.

Edale Mountain Rescue Team was called out about 6pm to the scene near High Neb after the climber injured his arm in the fall. The Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance also flew to the site.

A team spokesperson said: “A team member climbing nearby was quickly on scene followed by Helimed 54 which had been tasked to respond.

“The Helimed Doctor, who coincidentally is also an Edale team doctor, treated and stabilised the man before he was packaged on to our stretcher and carried to the waiting air ambulance.”
