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.
"I wish people would quit telling me I can do anything I want. I never thought I couldn't"
