Arizona Climber Killed By Bee Stings

Sad news the other week out of Arizona:

A climber’s body was found covered in bee stings and hanging off a southern Arizona cliff on Monday. His faithful dog was lying dead on top of the ridge.

Steven Johnson, 55, was last seen on Friday hiking in the Santa Rita Mountains with his dog right beside him. The Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Office found Johnson hanging off Mount Hopkins in his climbing gear. The cause of death has yet to be determined, but officials suspect a bee attack.

There’s a nice thread of rememberances on MountainProject for a guy who sounded like an incredible asset to the Arizona climbing community.  My condolences to his family.
