Rangers: Fallen Climber Spotted In Grand Teton

JACKSON HOLE, Wyo. (AP) — Rangers who received reports about fallen climber say they’ve spotted a motionless body in Grand Teton National Park in northwest Wyoming.

The U.S. Park Service says rangers flying over the area spotted the climber’s body on the north side of the Middle Teton on Sunday afternoon but were unable to reach him.

Park spokeswoman Jackie Skaggs tells the Jackson Hole News & Guide (http://bit.ly/NXk3uL ) that weather prevented rescuers from reaching the climber Sunday night and they will try to reach him Monday morning.

Skaggs says rangers believe climber fell about 1,000 feet while descending the peak with two friends. Skaggs says rangers believe the man is “severely injured or worse.”

Skaggs says the climber is from California but his name has not been released.
