She fell more than 100 feet.
The fall happened at the Left Fork of North Creek, commonly called “The Subway.” It is a popular cayoneering route.
Haas was completing the approach hike (approximately 2.5 miles) to the Subway with friends and was leading the group.
After her fall, the woman’s boyfriend rappelled down to her while the other two members of the group hiked out and phoned for help.
Due to the difficulty in accessing this particular part of the canyon, the park is asking for help from the Grand Canyon National Park’s helicopter search and rescue crew for assistance with the recovery.
This is the second incident in a week of a visitor getting too close to a cliff edge, slipping and falling. On Monday, September 2, a 33-year-old man fell in Behunin Canyon. Although he was not rappelling, Clark Proffitt was wearing a helmet.
He is in the ICU at the University Medical Trauma Center in Las Vegas.
