A 17-year-old girl was ticketed after she allegedly climbed 40-feet up a rock face at Garden of the Gods park with no permit, climbing equipment or partner.

The incident happened around 11:00 a.m. Sunday as the fire department was responding to an unrelated medical call at the park.

A spokeswoman for the department says crews observed the teen and told her to stay where she was so a rescue crew could go up and get her.

The girl was not identified, but the fire department says she was from out of town.
