"Efforts to reach the woman via helicopter yesterday were unsuccessful due to weather conditions.
"The group stayed overnight at the hut and LandSAR teams were able to successfully reach the woman and assist her out of the park today."
Initial indications suggest the woman received minor injuries, Moult said.
