The 7,535-foot Mount Yukla is known for its hard alpine routes and unforgiving terrain. Marshall fell an estimated 1,000 feet.

“It is with great sorrow that we announce we have lost one of our own: Dasan Marshall, one of the most amazing adventurers, mountaineers, and people that we have ever had the honor to call part of the Mountain Shop family, ” posted the Portland based gear store, Mountain Shop.
