Climber Killed On Denali Identified
The identity was released yesterday on the climber who died in a fall on Denali. He was Steffen Machulka, 49. He was with two other climbers Friday on an area where the protection of fixed lines was customarily used. In this case it was not, and he was not roped when he tried to arrest a sliding backpack and fell over 1,000 feet.
