Seattle climber died in North Cascades fall

Associated Press
SEDRO-WOOLLEY, Wash. — North Cascades National Park says a climber from Seattle died in a fall Saturday on Forbidden Peak. The park says 31-year-old Tyler Barton and a partner were on their way down from the 8,800-foot summit Saturday when he was hit by a falling rock and fell about 300 feet. The body was recovered Sunday by rangers supported by a contract helicopter.
