The Friday death of Senior Master Sgt Harold Mosley II, who was stationed at Schriever Air Force Base, apparently was accidental, Park County Undersheriff David Wohlers said Monday.

Mosley, 37, was rock climbing in the Badger Mountain area when he fell an unspecified distance at 1:38 p.m. Other climbers carried out his body.

This is an update to original reports from the scene which state that the deceased was hiking when the death occurred.

Badger Mountain is an 11,295-foot peak northwest of Lake George.

Mosley, who lived in Peyton, arrived at Schriever in June and was the National Space Defense Center’s senior enlisted leader, said Jennifer Thibault, a base spokeswoman. An erroneous early report said he died Wednesday.

“We are deeply saddened by this loss,” said Col. Mitchell Stratton, unit commander, in a statement. “We are a family and we are sad to lose one of our own. We will work to support each other in the coming days.”
