An Idaho man fell 1,100 feet to his death while mountain climbing in Wyoming's Grand Teton National Park on July 22.

A park spokesman told the Associated Press that 27-year-old Justin Beldin of Victor had reached the 12,800-foot summit of Middle Teton and was beginning to descend when the accident occurred. Beldin's death is the fourth backcountry fatality in Grand Teton National Park this summer.

The Middle Teton is one of the most popular climbs in the Teton Range. Park officials said Beldin was not wearing a helmet during his climb.
