A Denver woman died Saturday morning after falling roughly 900 feet while making a solo ascent of Capitol Peak near Aspen.
The Pitkin County Sheriff’s Office said the fall happened at about 8 a.m. and was witnessed by another person hiking in the area. The woman fell after a handhold — a rock she was attempting to grab onto — gave way, authorities said.
The woman’s body was recovered by a search and rescue team on Saturday afternoon.
Capitol Peak is 14,137-foot mountain in the Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness. It’s a difficult mountain to climb and other people have died on it before.
The woman’s age and name were not released.
