Specifically, the woman suffered a closed-head injury and a broken pelvis.
According to the sheriff's office, Big Horn County Search and Rescue requested Park County's assistance.
Officials said in a statement that rescuers used a rope system to safely remove the woman from the precarious terrain.
Once the woman was evacuated from the canyon, she was taken to a waiting helicopter and flown to a hospital in Billings.
Her condition is unknown.
