A statement said two men and two women found by searchers had died and one woman from the party of six remains in a very serious condition at Belford Hospital.
The sixth climber who raised the alarm is safe and well and being assessed and cared for by emergency services.
Police are making efforts to identify the deceased and to contact next of kin.
