Rangers attempted to reach the location on Friday night, but had to suspend their efforts due to lightning storms and darkness, according to Patterson. RMNP Search and Rescue Team members were also hampered by bad weather on Saturday as well.

On Sunday, the woman's body was extricated, to the Loch Vale Trail and wheeled out to the Glacier Trailhead, according to the park.

The Larimer County Coroner has identified the body as a 33-year-old Arvada woman, Patterson said. The name of the woman will not be released until after next of kin has been notified.
