Visitor injured in fall while rock climbing

A 36-year-old Washington, D.C., woman was injured in a rock-climbing accident Saturday at the former H&K quarry in Robeson Township, township police said.

Vanessa Little was climbing with two friends and was changing ropes when she fell 35 feet to the bottom of the quarry, landing on her back, Officer Matthew Smith said.

Little, who was not wearing a helmet, suffered a cut to her head and a leg injury in the 5:40 p.m. fall at the quarry off the closed portion of Route 82. Firefighters, paramedics and police from Robeson and Birdsboro responded and carried her to an ambulance. She was taken to Reading Hospital, where she was listed in fair condition late Saturday.

"She was lucky," said Smith, who added that rescuers were able to go through locked gates and use a walking trail to get to Little.

The quarry is owned by Birdsboro, which permits rock climbing there, police said.

I called the hospital, she is in intensive care and cannot receive phone calls at this time. Visitors are allowed.
