Bodies of 3 Mount Rainier climbers identified

The bodies recovered Tuesday from Mount Rainier have been identified as three of the six climbers who were killed in a fall in May.

The Pierce County Medical Examiner’s Office has identified the three as Mark Mahaney, 26; Uday Marty, 40; and John Mullally, 40. The three were part of a group of climbers killed in a 3,300-foot fall along the steep north slope of Mount Rainier on May 31.

Mullally was a Seattle resident, Mahaney was from St. Paul, Minn., and Marty lived in Singapore. They were with Matthew Hegeman, 38, and Eitan Green, 28, two guides for Alpine Ascents; and Erik Britton Kolb, of Brooklyn, N.Y.

The three bodies were spotted on Aug. 7 during a training flight, Mount Rainier National Park spokeswoman Patti Wold said Tuesday. No other remains have been found.
