KELOWNA, British Columbia (AP) - British Columbia authorities say a Seattle man fell to his death while rock climbing south of Penticton.

The British Columbia Coroners Service has identified the man who died Saturday as 31-year-old Stas Eric Gray.

Gray was climbing with friends on a rock-climbing site called Skaha Bluffs.

Regional coroner Larry Marzinzik says Gray was rappelling down during his third climb of the day when he fell about 25 feet.

There’s no indication what caused Gray to fall. The coroners’ service and Royal Canadian Mounted Police are investigating the death.
