ESTES PARK, Colo. (AP) -- A 20-year-old climber killed in a fall at Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado was a two-time Missouri state tennis champion and a state record-holder.

The National Park Service said Friday that Paul Nahon of Springfield, MO died Thursday after falling about 150 feet on Longs Peak, which reaches more than 14,000 feet. The park service says the route had ice in several spots at the time.

Nahon recently transferred to Colorado College.
