Climber Falls Several Hundred Feet To His Death

Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks

National Park News

On the morning of September 1st, a 59-year-old man was climbing North Palisade Peak (14,284 feet) in the northern portion of Kings Canyon National Park with two companions. Near the summit, he attempted to climb over a bulging ledge, but slipped and fell several hundred feet and was killed instantly. He was not on belay at the time. His companions reported the accident to a second party, who hiked out to report the incident. Rangers were notified of the accident late that evening and recovered his body the next day.
