SF Fire Dept. rescues man clinging to cliff at hidden Marshall's Beach

The San Francisco Fire Department rescued a man clinging from a forested cliff at Marshall’s Beach Tuesday morning.

The department first reported the incident on Twitter after 8:30 a.m. An update said a technical rope was used to reach the victim, who was conscious. After 10:30 a.m., the department shared the victim had been successfully rescued and was uninjured.

Marshall’s Beach is a small patch of sand south of the Golden Gate Bridge accessed by a steep trail. Within the Presidio, it has the reputation for being the city’s “most hidden” beach.

The national park website description reads, “If you’re looking for a secluded experience, Marshall’s Beach is the spot for you. Located just north of Baker Beach, this is one of our beaches near the Golden Gate Bridge. It’s incredibly photogenic, offering spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean and the Marin Headlands.”
