This morning at 7:30 a.m., as recovery operations were beginning for Paul Nahon, the man who died yesterday after falling from The Narrows along the Keyhole Route, Rocky Mountain National Park rangers were notified of another incident. A technical climber on the east face of Longs Peak took an approximate 50 foot roped fall and suffered numerous injuries.
Park rangers are being assisted by Rocky Mountain Rescue and Larimer County Search and Rescue.
Recovery efforts for Paul Nahon's body will be delayed until completion of this current rescue. Park staff will evaluate available aircraft, weather conditions and personnel necessary to complete the recovery.
