KINGMAN - Kingman Fire Capt. Rink Gordon places protective equipment on a 15-year-old boy who became stranded Sunday evening while rock climbing on White Cliffs Road.

According to Battalion Chief Bill Johnston, Gordon was lowered to the teenager by rope and then the two of them were lowered safely to the ground.

Johnston said the boy sustained minor abrasions but was otherwise unharmed.

He became stranded about 150 feet up the face of a cliff while climbing with friends.

Him and some friends were climbing the wall, while climbing he found himself unable to go up or down the face of the wall. They had to call for help. Those of you that are wondering if they were there to do graffiti, they were not. How do I know? This is my grandson, and he is not into defacing anything. They were there to challenge the wall....ONLY I hope I have cleared up any ones concern on this matter. I am grateful to the fire department for getting him down safely.

Eddie Noli and I climbed those white cliffs almost every Sat., when we were in grammar school, there are no 150' drop offs..
and we knew those cliffs like the back of our hands...never came across rattle snakes either..which is surprising...but bee hives, yes.
Eddie and I ran together for many summer years , during 1946 to '50...what fun...

I climbed up and down that cliff many times back in the 60's. Where is it ever 150 tall? It might be 80' a few places. Never did get stuck but it got tight a few times.

I hope they were not climbing the cliffs to do more graffiti as seen in the photo.
