An Edale and Buxton team snatch squad was called to Hooks Carr, Stanage Edge, on Wednesday lunchtime. A 21 year old male climber had fallen about 25 feet landing on his face.
He sustained serious facial injuries and was treated on site by an Edale Team paramedic. In the meantime, Buxton Team personnel carried equipment to the incident site, prior to a stretcher evacuation down the hill to a waiting DLR Air Ambulance.
The ambulance flew the injured climber to the Northern General Hospital, Sheffield, for further treatment.
