Dillon climber's body recovered from Thunder Pyramid Peak near Aspen

By Troy Hooper

A mountain recovery team retrieved a Dillon man's body from the Thunder Pyramid Peak area this morning.

David Morano, 41, an accountant, fell between 200 and 300 feet Saturday from a ridge near 13,832-foot Thunder Pyramid Peak, about a mile south of 14,018-foot Pyramid Peak.

Pitkin County sheriff's deputies said Morano was climbing at least two of the peaks in the area. After he fell over the eastern side of the edge, Morano's climbing partner and neighbor reportedly attempted to save him before calling authorities.

A two-person team from Mountain Rescue Aspen flew into the rugged region Wednesday morning. A sheriff's deputy said that the helicopter positioned the crew about 50 feet above Morano's body, where they were able to lift him out using a 150-foot cable.

The recovery team transported Morano's body to T-Lazy Seven Ranch, which was used as a landing zone for the mission.

An investigation into the death remains ongoing. An autopsy is scheduled for Thursday.

"Thus far, there is nothing to suggest that this was anything more than an accident," Pitkin County sheriff's deputy Alex Burchetta told Real Aspen.

Morano leaves behind a wife and 8-year-old child.
