Quote

A former Durango resident was killed Wednesday while climbing Yosemite National Park’s iconic El Capitan.

An account on the local blog El Capitan Reports said [Tyler Gordon, age 21] fell about 200 feet from Camp 6 on El Capitan’s Nose formation when he went to retrieve items that were dropped on Camp 5 below. Gordon was not connected to his Grigri, a rope-braking device that assists in belays, causing him to free-fall the length of the rope.
