Yales on Rocks

Two would-be mountain scalars for Yale, inspired by the warmest January 8 in New Haven's history, got stranded on a lonely ledge trying to climb the 300 feet cliff of East Rock, which overlooks the city. Their frenzied cries brought rope-wielding firemen who hauled them to the top, but waiting policemen subdued their premature spring fever by booking them on breach of peace charges. The pair were named as Donald Renkert and Peter Mensh.
