ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Two experienced climbers have fallen to their deaths on Alaska's Mount McKinley.
National Park Service rangers recovered the bodies of 39-year-old John Mislow of Newton, Mass., and 36-year-old Andrew Swanson of Minneapolis.
The climbers, both doctors, were roped together when they fell Thursday afternoon along Messner Couloir, a steep, hourglass-shaped snow gully on the 20,320-foot mountain, North America's tallest peak. The climbing partners began an ascent of the mountain's West Rib route on May 30.
