ROCKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK, Colo. — A Greeley man died on Longs Peak Saturday after falling 100 to 150 feet, according to Rocky Mountain National Park officials.

The 61-year-old man apparently slipped on ice along The Narrows section on the Keyhole Route, according to Kyle Patterson with RMNP.

Visitors in the area called park rangers at about 10 a.m., Patterson said.

Park rangers used a helicopter to get to the summit and were able to recover his body a little before 6 p.m.

His name will be released after his family has been notified.
