A woman, 25, is fighting for her life -- hospitalized, in critical condition -- after falling while mountain climbing Tuesday night in Big Cottonwood Canyon.

Police say heavy rainfall made the footing slick for the victim, who fell an estimated fifty feet in the Storm Mountain area of the canyon.

The victim was climbing with a friend.  Search and Rescue took about an hour to get her off the mountain.
