A rock climber has been taken to the Launceston General Hospital with suspected spinal injuries after a fall on Ben Lomond in state's north east.
It took police more than six hours to rescue the 30 year old solo climber, after he fell into a crevice half way up a rock face.
Paramedics had to climb to reach the patient, who was given first aid before being winched to the ground and put in a rescue helicopter.
