Authorities have identified a Virginia woman who fell to her death while rock climbing in the New River Gorge.

New River Gorge National River acting chief ranger Chuck Noll says 33-year-old Karen Feher of Midlothian, Va., was climbing with a group Saturday when she fell about 50 feet from the Kaymoor Buttress area in Fayette County.

Noll says authorities haven't determined the cause of the accident, which remains under investigation.
