WHITEHORSE - A B.C. man is dead after a climbing accident on Mount Logan in the Yukon.
Police say 22-year-old Stephen Canning of Invermere died May 23 after a fall on Canada's highest peak.
Haines Junction RCMP received a satellite phone call this past Friday, notifying them of the accident.
Canning was climbing at Kluane Park with two male friends, also from B.C.
RCMP say the accident happened on the east peak of Mount Logan, at an elevation of more than 5,800 metres.
An attempt to recover the body was unsuccessful because of the extreme location.
