A climber was rescued after suffering a leg injury on a Yorkshire Dales crag.

The 20-year-old man was tackling a route on Malham Cove on Sunday when he slipped and injured himself.

The Clapham-based Cave Rescue Organisation was called out about 1.50pm to the climber who was on a 7a-graded route above the crag’s catwalk.

A team spokesperson said: “The team provided safety cover for the paramedics and casualty, and carried the casualty by stretcher to a team vehicle, from where he was taken to the road ambulance for transfer to hospital.”

The incident was the 73rd of the year for the Cave Rescue Organisation.
