Authorities say a Minnesota man died after a fall while climbing in a canyon in northern Colorado.

The Fort Collins Coloradoan reports the man, who has been identified by the Larimer County Coronor as Mitchel Brian Halberg, of Winona, fell in Poudre Canyon on Saturday evening. Sheriff's deputies, medical personnel and two other members of the man's climbing party attempted CPR.


No other details were released, but the coroner's office determined the death to be an accident.

An online obituary for Halberg, 22, said a service will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday at Central Lutheran Church in Winona.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
