A climber has died in a fall on a Lake District crag.

Langdale Ambleside Mountain Rescue Team was called out about 6.35pm on Sunday after the man fell while climbing on Raven Crag in Great Langdale.

He suffered multiple injuries in the fall. A rescue team spokesperson said: “Despite efforts from bystanders and the team, sadly he was declared deceased at the scene.”

His body was taken from the crag to Ambleside.

The three-hour operation involved 17 Langdale Ambleside MRT volunteers.

Raven Crag, which rises above the Old Dungeon Ghyll Hotel, has more than 120 graded rock-climbing routes, ranging from Severe to E8.
