CLIMBING UNROPED AND UNPROTECTED—Washington, Mt. St. Helens, Ape Canyon. Sp. 4 Peter Mosier (26) was with a U.S. Army training group when he fell 200 feet to his death down a shear rock wall. He was free climbing on a cockscomb like ridge of loose, rotten rock at 3,700 feet. His three companions did not see him fall, but heard him scream. One member then left to report the accident.
