A hiker fell to his death at Zion National Park in Utah this week, officials said.

Jason Hartwell, 43, of Draper, Utah, was found dead at the base of the Angels Landing summit Friday morning, the National Park Service said in a statement.

A search and rescue effort had been launched Thursday after park visitors reported someone had fallen off Angels Landing, according to officials.

Hartwell’s injures were consistent with a high elevation fall, park officials said.

The agency is working with the Washington County Sheriff’s Office to investigate.
