A leading American rock climber was “banged up” after falling at a popular climbing spot in California’s Yosemite National Park. Emily Harrington assured her followers she was going to be OK after the accident at the El Capitan peak on Sunday. “Not much to say except I took a bad fall and pin balled a bit then somehow hit the rope w[ith] my neck,” Harrington captioned an Instagram post.

Harrington, 33, also expressed her gratitude for the people she was with, whom she said “helped get her out” after the fall. Among the people she thanked was Alex Honnold, the subject of the 2018 documentary film Free Solo that chronicled his attempt to free climb El Capitan. Adrian Ballinger, Everest guide and Harrington’s boyfriend, also helped in the rescue.

In Harrington’s Instagram post, injuries to her face and neck are visible. She listed the Community Regional Medical Center as the location of her post. The highest point of El Capitan is 7,573ft (2,308m). Harrington has won five United States sports climbing national championships in her career.
