Boulder rangers rescued a University of Colorado student over the weekend after she got high on mushrooms and took off all her clothes while climbing the Third Flatiron, according to the Boulder County Sheriff's Office.

The student, 21-year-old Taylor Powers, was climbing with her roommates at around 5:24 p.m. Sunday when they called police saying Powers was high on mushrooms and in distress. Rescuers arrived and found Powers had removed all of her clothing and was being restrained by her roommates.

Rangers handcuffed her and were able to secure her. It took rescuers about an hour to get her to a nearby shelter. At 7:50 p.m., Powers was transported to Boulder Community Hospital, where she was treated and released.

Powers was ticketed with unlawful consumption of a controlled substance. Officials indicated there could be additional charges filed against others involved in the incident.
