Rock climber in hospital after fall at South Stack

Visit Anglesey

A man is in hospital after a fall from a cliff face at South Stack.

It took four and a half hours for emergency crews to rescue the climber near Red Wall Cliff. He was rock climbing with a friend when the accident happened at around 11.25am on Saturday morning (22nd September).

Coastguard teams from Holyhead and Cemaes Bay were called out to the scene along with the RNLI lifeboat from Trearddur Bay.

The man was found lying on the rocks with rib injuries – he was airlifted by the Coastguard helicopter from Caernarfon Airport and taken to Ysbyty Gwynedd in Bangor.

The coastguard said the risk of falling rocks and the position on the cliff edge meant the operation took some time.
