A climber who fell from the Stawamus Chief on Wednesday has been flown to hospital for treatment.

Volunteers from Squamish Search and Rescue were sent out to assist with the rescue, along with an ambulance and helicopter, after the call came in at 4:13 p.m, according to B.C. Emergency Health Services.

An EHS spokeswoman said she had no information about the injured man's condition.

"The Chief," as it's known, is a 700-metre granite cliff popular with rock climbers, hikers and base jumpers alike.
