GARDINER, New York (WABC) -- A woman from Brooklyn died while on a rock climbing excursion in Ulster County.

The group was near the area of the Trapps Trailhead around 3:30 p.m. at the time of the incident.
Investigators say Sobel was setting up protection gear in the rocks about 70 feet up when she suddenly lost her grip.
She fell 50 feet and was pronounced dead at the scene.
