A rock climber died Friday night after falling near Boulder Falls, the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release.
When medical personnel arrived at 6:25 p.m., the climber was unconscious, the release said. The climber was declared deceased at the scene after first aid efforts failed.
Recovery efforts were halted Friday night due to weather and darkness, the sheriff’s office said. They will resume on Saturday.
The name of the climber has not been released, and the sheriff’s office will conduct the death investigation, according to the news release.
This marks the latest climbing-related death in the region this month. On June 6, a Greenwood Village teenager died after falling while rappelling in Clear Creek Canyon.
In May, a 48-year-old Boulder man died after falling 100 feet while free-solo climbing in Eldorado Canyon State Park.
