2-28-14 climber deaths-argentina

CLYMAN, Wis. (AP) — A relative says the bodies of two climbers from Wisconsin and Pennsylvania have been recovered from the Argentinian slope where they died after falling in late December.  Julie Feldman, of St. Paul, Minn., said Thursday the bodies were found this week and are being returned to the U.S. Funeral arrangements are still being made.  The climbers were Feldman's cousin, 22-year-old Jarod VonRueden, of Clyman, Wis., and 28-year-old Frank Keenan, of Clarks Summit, Pa.  The two were on Mount Aconcagua, the highest peak in North and South America. Feldman says they were descending in cold and snowy weather when they apparently slipped and fell in an area with loose rock.
