Two Ice Climbers Die in Yellowstone National Park

Posted on in Personal Injury

Yellowstone National Park officials say “rescue crews have recovered the bodies of two Montana men who died while trying to climb a frozen waterfall below the rim of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone River.” (AP, 5/26). As a personal injury attorney, I always encourage those involved in extreme adventure activities to proceed with the caution. Friends of the two deceased men allerted park officials when the two had not returned from a weekend hike.

Rescuers found the climbers' bodies on a rock ledge several hundred feet below the canyon rim. Park officials say it appears an ice surge fell on the men as they were climbing the rock ledge.
