Visiting Climber Found Dead in Teton National Park

A climber from North Carolina died from falling while climbing in Grand Teton National Park.

Park officials said Alexander Kenan's body was discovered as climbing guides were descending the Peak 11,840 Mountain on Friday.

Rangers said said they don't know when Kenan died, but believe it happened within the past week.

There aren't any known witnesses but rangers ask climbers who were present in the area during that time to call them.

Kenan was found with a climbing rope, helmet and gear at the time.

His body had been discovered 400 feet below the Peak 11,840 Mountain and was recovered by helicopter.
