A family was rescued at Three Cliffs Bay in Gower after becoming stuck on a cliff face.
The grandfather and two young children were spotted around 100ft up Great Tor, next to Three Cliffs Bay, by a member of the public and emergency services were alerted.
According to the BBC, an RAF helicopter and coastguard rescue teams were sent to the scene.
David Jones, watch manager at Swansea Coastguard, told Wales Online: "It appears that the two children were attempting to climb up the cliff face when they became stuck. Their grandfather then tried to help them, but he also found himself stranded as well.
"We always urge people to stay away from cliffs, as they can be crumbly and prone to erosion.
"Do not attempt to climb them unless you are properly equipped and trained to do so.
"If you see someone in difficulty on cliffs, do not attempt self-rescue, as like in this case you could end up getting stuck as well. Instead, call 999 and ask for the coastguard."
The family were taken to the beach below and were said to be uninjured.
