A climber (m 61) was being lowered from the top of a climb by his belayer when a very large piece of rock became detached from the crag above him. The rock hit his head, caused a suspected fracture of his shoulder and abrasions to his back. He was treated at the foot of the crag by CRO members before being secured in to a stretcher and winched up into a Coastguard helicopter for evacuation from the crag. He was then transferred to an air ambulance for his journey to hospital.
