“The friends descended to his location, yelled for help, and called 911 where Glacier County Dispatch then diverted the call to Glacier National Park,” park officials said in the statement.
An air emergency service was diverted from another incident and airlifted the man to Two Medicine Ranger Station, the park said. The man was declared deceased by emergency personnel, according to the news release.
His death was the third reported in the park in two days.
The pair were climbing Dusty Star Mountain when they became overdue and were reported missing Sunday, setting off a search.
