Top Climber Dies in Avalanche

Canadian climber Guy Lacelle died Thursday morning when an avalanche swept him over a cliff in Hyalite Canyon, according to the Bozeman Daily Chronicle. Lacelle was taking part in an ice-climbing competition when a team above him triggered the small avalanche. Lacelle, 54, was considered one of the world's leading ice climbers and did mostly solo free climbing.
