Oregon Man Dies In 1,000-Foot Fall From Mount Yukla

ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Alaska State Troopers say an Oregon man died while climbing Mount Yukla.

Troopers say Dasan Marshall of Portland, Oregon, was climbing with a friend on Sunday when he fell about 1,000 feet.

Because of the terrain in the Chugach Mountains about 6 miles from the Eagle River Nature Center, a helicopter was used to recover 24-year-old Marshall’s body. The body was taken to the state medical examiner’s office.

No foul play is suspected.
