Two women fell to their deaths Saturday while climbing in Grand Teton National Park.
The National Park Service reports 28-year old Tyler Strandberg and 28-year-old Catherine Nix fell about 200 feet while climbing Teewinot Mountain without ropes.
The climbers were ascending the mountain's East Face, which is considered the easiest trail on Teewinot. It's a class 4 climb, which means the trail isn't vertical and can be climbed without a rope.
