The Boulder County Coroner's Office says the climbing death of a 20-year-old man in Rocky Mountain National Park was an accident.

The Daily Camera reports Paul Nahon of Springfield, Mo., died after falling about 150 feet from the Narrows on the Keyhole Route on Longs Peak on Aug. 15. The route had ice in several spots.

Nahon, a 2011 graduate of Glendale High School in Springfield, won state tennis titles in 2010 and 2011 and held the record for most tennis wins in Missouri Class II high school history with an overall record of 117-7.

He had recently transferred to Colorado College.

Missouri Sen. Roy Blunt says Nahon worked as an intern in his Washington office over the summer.
