Incident report

A climber from London was visiting with his climbing club for the weekend. Whilst climbing an HS route on the Roaches upper tier, he fell, had some gear pop out, and landed hard with his back against a rock.
He had a lower back injury, coccyx. Paramedics treated the casualty on site and gave IV pain relief. He was placed on a scoop for extrication, then loaded onto the Bell stretcher and taken down to the waiting air-ambulance for transfer to hospital.
