Body of Seattle climber recovered in North Cascades National Park

The body of a 31-year-old Seattle man was recovered Sunday after he fell to his death in North Cascades National Park, according to the National Park Service.

Tyler Barton had summitted Forbidden Peak via the West Ridge about 5:30 p.m. Saturday and was descending when he was hit by a rock and fell about 300 feet, the park service said. Barton’s climbing partner was not injured.

Other climbers who witnessed the fall hiked out from Boston Basin and notified rangers at 10:30 p.m., according to the park service.

On Sunday, after a delay due to fog and an incoming weather system, park rangers recovered Barton’s body with the help of a privately contracted helicopter out of Darrington.
