The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department said a man preparing to descend from a rock cliff in North Conway fell 65 feet and died of his injuries.
Officers said Brian Delaney, 56, of Scarborough, Maine, was climbing alone Saturday and climbed up Cathedral Ledge. At about noon on Saturday, another climber saw him finish his climb, then saw him fall.
Other climbers came to his aid and called 911 for assistance.
