ROCKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK, Colo. – Authorities have released the name of a man killed in a rockfall and avalanche that also injured two other climbers at Rocky Mountain National Park.
The Boulder County Coroner’s Office identified the victim Friday as 25-year-old Christopher Clark of Land O’ Lakes, Fla.
Two New Mexico climbers were injured in Sunday’s avalanche.
A helicopter crew on Tuesday lifted Clark’s body from the avalanche zone at Mount Meeker, where rescuers were working in wintry conditions at terrain above 11,500 feet at the site near Dreamweaver Couloir.
Climbers in the area witnessed the landslide.
