Two climbers rescued from Cheyenne Canyon's pinnacle Saturday have been cited.

Neither climber was using the proper climbing gear. The difficult rescue by Colorado Springs Fire Department took 4 hours.

The married couple was trapped 250 feet above where they should have been. Luckily, no one was hurt.

Two people have fallen and died at the pinnacle in the past 2 years.
