Edmonds climber dies in Grant County fall

An Edmonds man was killed in a 150-foot fall from a rock cliff in Grant County Sunday.

Grant County Coroner Craig Morrison identified the victim Monday as Robert Andrew Prosser, 60.

Morrison said Prosser and a companion had come to a canyon about nine miles north of Coulee City to do ice-climbing on sheer canyon walls that are popular with climbers from around the state.

Morrison said it was not clear whether Prosser was on an icy surface when he fell shortly after 1 p.m.  He died at the scene from head and chest injuries, the coroner said.
