A West Jordan woman has fallen to her death this week, while rappeling in a popular area, just outside Zion National Park.

Authorities say Shelby Christensen, 19, was climbing -- in the Birch Hollow area, with four friends -- when her hand got caught between the rope and the cliff face.

She fell about 120 feet and was pronounced dead at the scene.
