According to the Pitkin County Sheriff’s Office, a woman died Saturday after falling while climbing near the summit of Capitol Peak in Colorado.

The hiker, a Denver resident, was not identified publicly.

A group of climbers witnessed a solo climber fall after a boulder she gripped gave way at 8 a.m.

Her body was found this Saturday.

The woman plummeted around 900 feet before being rescued.

Capitol Peak is 14 miles west of Aspen in the Rocky Mountains.

Its peak elevation is approximately 14,130 feet.

According to authorities, only experienced climbers should attempt to conquer the mountain.

In 2017, five climbers died on the peak over several weeks. After a rescue worker was gravely injured during recovery operations last year, officials chose to leave the body of a deceased climber on the mountain.
