A tragic ending to the search for a missing woman in the mountains of Eastern Fresno County. Search and rescue members say the 36-year-old woman had apparently been rock climbing with two others on obelisk mountain when she fell.

Two other climbers were with her. One stayed behind while the other hiked out to get help.

The search and rescue team arrived at the location Monday morning; however, the woman had already died.

Search and rescue members will spend the next few hours getting the victim and the other climber out of the area.
