"Initial observations of the scene and gear configuration indicate that the fall was likely due to collapse of the ice column during the men’s ascent."

Climbing frozen water ice in the lower 48 this time of the year?

Sounds waaaaaaaaaaaaay to sketchy for my ice climbing fervor.

RIP and condolences to the families.
