BOULDER, Colo. – Authorities say a 20-year-old woman was seriously injured when she fell about 30 to 40 feet while rock climbing in a canyon west of Boulder.

Deputy Brandon Bussard with the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office says the woman, whose name has not been released, fell at about 3:40 p.m. Saturday when a piece of her equipment pulled free from the rock face she was climbing in Boulder Canyon. She suffered serious injuries to her head, shoulder and arm but was conscious when rescue crews arrived.

The woman is recovering at a Boulder hospital.
