Shortly after the publication of our August 8 post identifying the fourteeners in the Elk Mountains near Aspen as Colorado's most dangerous, authorities announced the death of 57-year-old Rei Hwa Lee on North Maroon Peak, one of the aforementioned sites. Lee is the third person to die on an Elk Mountains fourteener in 22 days, and the second fatality in the Maroon Bells area since late May.
