A Dallas man has died after falling off Washington state’s Cascade Mountains.

Chelan County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Rich Magnussen said 60-year-old Robert Colburn’s son reported Thursday night that Colburn had not returned to camp after climbing Aasgard Pass, southwest of Leavenworth.

The 60-year-old was last seen around 3 pm Oct. 31 as he was descending Aasgard.

Rescue personnel said it appeared Colburn had slipped and fallen several hundred feet.
