A climber escaped with just a sprain and bruises following a 600ft plunge down a Highland peak.
The 19-year-old man from Cambridge Climbing Club tripped and fell while descending a mountain in the Cairngorms.
A horrified passing member of the Glenmore Mountain Rescue team raised the alarm after witnessing his tumble from the ‘Goat Track’ on Coire An T’Sneachda.
The teenager was taken to Raigmore Hospital, Inverness, with a sprained ankle and bruising.
A spokesman for Northern Constabulary said: "The climber fell tumbling and sliding about 200 metres down the Goat Path. He was lucky to escape with such minor injuries.
