A team of California Highway Patrol officers rescued a man who was clinging to a cliff at Mori Point Monday afternoon.
According to CHP, the man was "clinging to a sheer cliff wall" about 75 feet above the beach in Pacifica. He was trying to climb the cliff when he became stranded and couldn't move.
"He was approximately 300 feet from the top of the cliff and access to the man was extremely difficult and hazardous due to the steep terrain and no access points for a rope rescue," Sergeant James Andrews said in a statement.
To make matters worse, Sergeant Andrews said, "At the time of the rescue, there were high winds and moderate rainfall."
