YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK (CBS SF) — A Bay Area man died while rock climbing in Yosemite National Park Saturday shortly after his girlfriend accepted his marriage proposal.

36-year old Brad Parker, a veteran rock climber and Sebastopol resident was killed after falling from a climb along Matthes Crest according to the Santa Rosa Press Democrat.

Parker had completed a climb to the summit of Cathedral Peak where he proposed to his girlfriend Jainee Dial. She accepted his proposal, but the couple separated as Parker went to climb along Matthes Crest by himself.

Yosemite Park Ranger Kari Cobb told the Press Democrat that Parker was climbing alone and without ropes on the granite crest when other climbers saw him fall around 5:45 p.m.

This was the second climbing death in Yosemite this year.
