Only fell 3ft from the start of the Original route on Holly Tree Wall(that very polished foothoold), but caught his ankle on a jutting piece of rock. How unlucky is that?

nice photo, where you the guy taking photos from the top of continuation wall? We didn't have a camera but had a good view of the rescue. Saw the accident first hand lower down earlier though there was little we could do. Was it just a sprain or did he break his ankle?

Excellent photo. The helicoptor jumps out at you.

Great photo. I was climbing with the chap that day albeit on another rope. He was fine after a visit to Bangor hospital. Very bad sprained ankle. He has fully recovered although still struggles to get to the bar. !!

So he'll never play footy for England again!
