A woman climbing in Boulder Canyon fell -- possibly as far as 100 feet -- and survived overnight, according to the sheriff's office scanner communication.
A passerby found the woman early this morning in the climbing area known as "The Dome," which is near milemarker 40 in Boulder Canyon.
The Dome is about a half mile from the entrance to Boulder Canyon. According to dispatch, the woman could have fallen from the rock she was climbing 12 hours ago.
A helicopter early this morning rushed her to Boulder Community Hospital.
A sheriff's official had few details about the episode, and couldn't comment on the extent of the woman's injuries.
