The people presumed dead in the climbing accident also have been confirmed.

The six died while attempting to summit the 14,411-foot peak via Liberty Ridge, the most challenging of the guided ascents to the summit. Climbers approach from the north side of the mountain along a route where rock and ice falls pose a significant risk.

Typically, the route is climbed in the early part of the climbing season because the risks increase as the snow and ice melt, according to U.S. Park Service and guide officials.

The climbers left May 26 on a five-day trip that was to end Friday.

Park-service and guide officials said they heard from the group at 6 p.m. Wednesday, and all was well, though a storm was hitting the area.

Park-service officials believe the accident happened as the climbers were at 12,800 feet, still on their way up the mountain. Debris and camping gear were seen Saturday around 9,500 feet, indicating a fall of more than 3,000 feet.
