SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — Three women were rescued from a Blacks Beach cliff early Thursday.

The three women, all from East County, were stuck on a cliff in the Box Canyon area of La Jolla just after 8 a.m., according to San Diego Fire-Rescue and lifeguards. Fire crews said the women became stuck just above the beach, prompting crews to use a rope system to hoist them down.

"As you can see, even using a rope system to get down to the beach is challenging because of the steep and slippery cliff conditions," SDFD said in a Facebook post.

Crews took about an hour to safely bring the women down to the beach.

The Box Canyon area is a popular destination for hikers, but fire crews warn to be aware of false trails in the area.

None of the women were injured.
