Body of Missing Climber Found 09-03-10
Contact: Kerry Olson, (360) 854-7365, ext 13
Marblemount, WA — The body of missing climber John Arum, was found on the north slope of Storm King Mountain by National Park Service rangers. They were conducting an aerial search along the “fall line” below the location where his waist pack was found yesterday. While previous flights had been made in this area, recent snow melt made it possible to locate his body late this afternoon. This location was approximately 300 feet below where the waist pack was found. National Park Rescue personnel are in the process of evaluating recovery options which are complicated due to steep, technical and unstable terrain.
