A Falmouth Coastguard spokesman told The Cornishman: "We received a report of a climber who had fallen and had severe head injuries so we tasked three coastguard teams and a rescue helicopter and the ambulance service.
"The man was airlifted off the cliffs by the helicopter from Culdrose and taken direct to Treliske. He was in a pretty bad way. We have just spoken to the hospital and whilst he was at Treliske he died."
