A Utah man died after falling 80 feet in a climbing accident near northern Arizona’s Sycamore Canyon.

The Arizona Sun reports that Joshua Dale Riggs, 32, of Moab, was found dead Monday by U.S. Forest Service rescuers after Riggs’ female companion called 911.

The woman told authorities that she and Riggs had been camping near White Horse Lake and climbing at Paradise Forks.

Investigators have not determined what caused the fall.
