The team were called to a fallen climber at Cratcliffe, near Birchover. The 27yo man had been climbing when he fell around 9m, sustaining injuries to his head, arms and hand. The team were first on scene and he was given treatment and pain relief by team doctors. An EMAS ambulance crew were also in attendance.
Due to the nature of his injures and the difficult extraction from his location, a HM Coastguard helicopter was called, which was used to winch the casualty from his difficult position and take him to the Northern General hospital in Sheffield for further treatment.
