Having completed a route a climber was being lowered by his belay. Unfortunately, the pair were using a shorter rope than normal and the inevitable happened, the climber fell the final few metres. 

He was treated by the team for suspected c-spine (Back and neck) injuries and evacuated to a Land Ambulance and taken to Hospital by Road.
