Norton was visiting the rock formation while on a hiking trip with her college friends, according to her obituary.

Norton, who was from Hot Springs, South Dakota, is the second person to fall from the crag - a popular hiking destination and picturesque spot - this year, officials said.

"Norton was apparently moving from one are of the [Hawksbill] Crag to another when she lost her footing and fell approximately one hundred feet", authorities said in a statement.

According to university newspaper the Observer, emergency crews responded to the scene just before 3:30 a.m., and Monfries had suffered serious injuries to her head and pelvis.

Sheriff Wheeler said Norton's death was a reminder of how unsafe these popular spots like Hawksbill Crag can be.

Wheeler said Norton's is the latest death in a string of several in recent years at the location, which is a popular with photographers. During the school year she worked in the library, and over the summers she participated in internships. She was preparing to work as an environmental engineer or in any career that "would make a difference to the environment".
