Authorities identified the 26-year-old man found at the summit of Longs Peak on Sunday as Fort Collins resident Sudheer Averineni.
Averineni's body was found about 1 p.m. after his two hiking partners alerted Rocky Mountain National Park staff that he had not reconnected with them Saturday evening, according to a park news release.
Winter weather conditions including high winds, below-freezing temperatures, snow and ice were present at Longs Peak on Saturday and Sunday.
Averineni was wearing tennis shoes, jeans and a hooded sweat shirt, according to the news release.
Weather conditions hampered rescue attempts late Saturday, Patterson said.
This is the first death on Longs Peak this year. There were three fatalities in 2000
