CALGARY - Sources have identified the second person who died during a tragic rock climbing accident near Canmore, Alta.
Ranjit Sidhu, 31, of Calgary and Jane Vuong, 25, plunged about 100 metres to their deaths Sunday afternoon while rappelling off a rock face in the Heart Creek day use area, about 80 km west of Calgary.
The two were on a six-pitch, 180-metre long climbing route called Sciatica on the Amphitheatre Wall area of Heart Creek.
One came off the rope and as there was nothing to hold the other, the rope pulled through the anchor.
Mike Koppang, Kananaskis Public Safety Specialist, said Monday a photo taken of the pair rappelling before the fall and the gear that was still attached to them gave officials an idea of what happened.
Permanent bolts are fixed to the rock face, but there is no indication anything was wrong with them.
"What we have is a tragic accident," said Staff Sgt. Brad Freer with Canmore RCMP.
"There is no fault between either one of them."
