The rescue team came to the aid of an unidentified climber around 3 p.m. Sunday. The climber was stuck about a third of the way up the rock and could not figure out how to get back down.
The Morro Bay Fire Department responded to the scene, in addition to the rescue team. The climber did not suffer any injuries but did receive a citation for climbing the rock.
On Feb. 19, three 15-year-olds reached the top of the rock but needed rescue workers to help them get down. The teens said they climbed the 581-foot rock because it looked fun.
