A man scaling Sunset Cliffs was injured Wednesday after his climbing rope snapped, authorities said.
Rescuers were called to Sunset Cliffs in Ocean Beach just after 4 p.m. to tend to the wounded climber.
Lee Swanson of the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department said the man sustained a broken leg, among other injuries, during the ill-fated climb.
Emergency crews planned to airlift the man out of the rocky area.
By 4:45 p.m., rescuers had pulled the man from the cliffs. He was transported to UCSD Medical Center with non life-threatening injuries, including a leg wound.
No further details were immediately released.
