I was there, belaying my son on pompadour when this occurred.

he was descending from good fortune the rightmost 17 on the grey slab. It appeared his descent got out of control and he fell about 10m to the belay ledge. There were several people who helped him, called 000 & looked after him until the ambulance folks turned up...about 20 minutes after they were called. the chopper arrived soon after, as did the police rescue, more ambulance men. We all kept clear under pallets overhang. The chopper came back & winched him out soon after. We thought it was a particularly well conducted rescue, no chopped down trees, no fuss and on a windy day too.

It did not appear that he had life threatening injuries but he was in a lot of pain.
his partner was being counselled by other climbers in the group.
we hope he rec overs quickly and is not too
phased by the incident
