A climber's been airlifted from the Southern Alps after suffering moderate injuries in a fall.
The 21-year-old Christchurch man fell nine metres while rock-climbing with one other person on the Mount Sebastapol bluffs this afternoon, just south of Mount Cook village.
He's suffered a dislocated shoulder and other injuries, but is in a stable condition.
Emergency services were alerted to the incident at around 4.15pm this afternoon.
The climber's now being treated at the Mount Cook Search and Rescue Base.
It is expected he will be transferred to Timaru Hospital this evening by the Westpac Rescue Helicopter.
