(AP) Two rock climbers from New York City have had an outing to remember: They spent hours in the dark dangling from ropes hundreds of feet over an Adirondack lake.


State environmental conservation officials say 28-year-old Cedric Bien and 27-year-old Susannah Gue (gyoo) were descending the 700-foot-high Rogers Rock on Sunday when their rope got snagged, leaving them stuck part way down the cliff towering over the northern end of Lake George.


A camper at nearby Rogers Rock state campground alerted a caretaker around 6:30 p.m. A team of state forest rangers launched a rescue operation Sunday night, with one of them rappelling 450 feet down the cliff to reach the stranded climbers.


Bien and Gue were then lowered to the base of the cliff early Monday morning.
