Portland Climber’s Death Prompts Outpouring of Support on Social Media

Tuesday, January 20, 2015

 

Portland’s mountaineering community is mourning the loss of 24-year-old Dasan Marshall, who died climbing Mount Yukla in Alaska on Sunday, through an outpouring of support on social media. 

Alaska State Troopers said Monday Marshall died after a 1,000-foot fall Sunday, while he was climbing with a friend. 

Mountain Shop, an outdoor and mountaineering store where Marshall worked, announced the news in a Facebook post Monday. 

“He passed away yesterday, doing what he loved most. In this time of loss, we are thankful for that thought,” the post read. 

Friends and family flocked to Marshall’s Facebook page, posting memories spent climbing, camping and adventuring. 

“He was a beautiful soul,” Stephen Barber wrote. 

Andy Cox wrote of Marshall’s ability to inspire those around him.  

“An unmatched smile with an incredible love for life, he died in a place he was so attached to, doing what he loved. He will continue to inspire me and shine in my mind,” wrote Andy Cox. 

Marshall’s body was recovered by helicopter, roughly six miles from the Eagle River Nature Center in the Chugach Mountains. No foul play is suspected.
