The National Park Service says a 61-year old climber from upstate New York has died while climbing Mount McKinley in Alaska. The park service says William Hearne of Fairport, New York, died Thursday while ascending the West Buttress route of the 20,320-foot (6,193-meter) mountain. Officials with Denali National Park and Preserve say Hearne was part of a six-member expedition that began the climb on May 1. The park service says he collapsed after his team reached 13,500 feet (4,100 meters) and was pronounced dead soon after.
