Rocky Mountain National Park rangers received a 911 call shortly after 8:00 a.m. this morning, reporting that a 24 year old male fell roughly 150 feet from The Narrows on the Keyhole Route on Longs Peak. Initial reports from bystanders indicated the man suffered multiple traumatic injuries. An off-duty park volunteer was in the area with a radio. He and his climbing party descended to the patient. The man survived the fall but later succumbed to his injuries. The group performed CPR but the man perished.
The man is from Springfield, Missouri. His name will be released when next of kin are notified.
Ice was present along several locations along the Keyhole Route at the time of the incident.
