Ice fall near Ruth Glacier in Denali Park kills climber

by KTNA Staff ~ April 29th, 2011

An ice avalanche killed a climber near the Ruth Gorge in the Alaska Range early Thursday morning.  The climber was on a guided climb and another guided party was caught up in the avalanche as well.  The guiding companies involved in the accident and those that climb on the Ruth Glacier on a regular basis are talking about  the unpredictable event and wonder what could have been done differently.  Sue Deyoe has more the accident:

    Great job Sue. I can attest that the details were accurate, being on the helicopter in the rescue efforts. Keep up the good work. This is awesome journalism for such a small community.
