Utah climber dies after falling from rocks

CANE BEDS - A 16-year-old St. George, Utah, boy fell about 100 feet to his death Sunday morning in the area of 1800 East and Cane Beds Road.

Relatives told Mohave County Sheriff's deputies that Rulon Jessop was climbing on the face of a rock when he fell. He was climbing with adult uncles and his younger brother after camping in the area overnight.

They were reportedly trying to reach a cave when the accident occurred, said Mohave County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Trish Carter.
