A climber named Robbi Mecus, 52, died after falling roughly 1,000 feet while climbing Mount Johnson in Alaska’s Denali National Park and Preserve. Her climbing partner, a 30-year-old woman from California, was seriously injured and rescued the following day. Another climbing party witnessed the fall and reported it, then provided care to the injured climber. A rescue helicopter and mountaineering rangers successfully retrieved the injured climber for additional care. Mecus’ body was later recovered after improved weather conditions. Mecus was described as an incredible ranger who dedicated her career to protecting the environment and promoting diversity and inclusion in outdoor activities.
