The BC Coroners Service has confirmed the identity of a man who died following a rock-climbing incident near Penticton on Saturday.
He was Stas Eric Gray, 31, from Seattle, Washington.
Gray was with several friends who were rock-climbing at Skaha Bluffs, a world-class rock-climbing site south of Penticton, on the afternoon of Aug. 30.
They had completed two successful climbs and Gray was rappelling down on his third climb of the day when he fell approximately the last eight metres of the climb.
Despite the best efforts of fellow- climbers and emergency personnel, Gray died at the scene.
