Climber Reportedly Dies on Middle Teton
Fell from the Northwest Couloir
Earlier today, an unidentified climber reportedly fell from the Northwest Couloir of Middle Teton, the third highest peak in Wyoming's Teton Range. The man was standing at the edge of the couloir in Grand Teton National Park with two fellow climbers when he tumbled for unknown reasons, according to Outerlocal, a Jackson Hole, Wyoming-based hub for adventurers. An Outerlocal employee, who was on the summit of the nearly 13,000-foot peak when the incident occurred, placed a call to park rangers, but additional details have not yet been released.
