An ice climber was killed in the Uncompahgre Gorge south of Ouray Colorado on January 18, 2020 when a falling block of ice triggered a small avalanche. The victim was hit by the ice and snow, and fell into the gorge. She came to rest in the creek where she was fully buried in the debris. The victim was not climbing at the time of the accident. She was untethered. Our deepest condolences go out to the family, friends, and everyone affected by this accident.
