A Squamish, B.C., woman has died after falling 25 to 30 metres off a cliff while rock climbing in Washington State.

Amy Stein, 37, was climbing with a group of four others Tuesday at the Snow Creek Wall about 240 kilometres east of Seattle, when she tried to jump out of the way of a falling rock, according to John Wisemore, the undersheriff for the Chelan County Sherriff's office.

"They were on the descent for the climb for the day, and a rock had come loose up above the victim … she tried to jump out of the way of this loose rock — I don't know how big this rock was — but when she jumped out of the way she apparently fell over a 70- to 100-foot cliff," said Wisemore.

Stein was alive when her climbing partners reached her, but died a short time later. Her body was recovered yesterday.

Last weekend a father and his 10-year-old daughter were crushed by a boulder while camping near the top of Blackcomb Mountain, near Whistler, B.C.
