Bailee Mulholland Wiki – Bailee Mulholland Biography
Bailee Mulholland, 26, a Colorado woman who plunged to her death while solo climbing inside a national park has been identified by bereaved friends as an avid climber and “mountain person.” Boulder resident Bailee Mulholland fell 500 feet to her death Sunday after attempting to scale Four Aces of Blitzen Ridge in Rocky Mountain National Park, according to officials and a report. “She knew exactly who she was. She is a mountaineer who loved living in Boulder and was so grateful to be from there,” fellow climber Tim Watts told KDVR. “You can do everything right and everything can go wrong.” “Bailee was definitely, you can say it in many different ways, a force to be reckoned with, very confident, very driven,” she added. Watts also wrote in a trail project post that Mulholland excelled at trail running which eventually led her to tackle more technical terrain.
Bailee Mulholland was 26 years old.
Woman who died free-solo climbing ID’d as ‘mountain person’
“She approached rock climbing with the same insatiable appetite that she had for trail running and moderate free soloing,” Watts said in the emotional post. “I was happy to show her the best I could and she soaked up every experience I had the luxury of sharing with her like a sponge, always eager to improve, challenge herself and learn more about the craft.” Mulholland was also a yoga instructor who loved to bake, friends told KDVR. “She was always excited to bake big, elaborate birthday cakes for the people she loved, her family members, she would come up with all these special ingredients,” said yoga instructor Morgan Sears. Her body was recovered Monday morning after 27 years. The elderly man she was climbing with called for help, authorities said. A search and rescue team arrived in the area above Ypsilon Lake and airlifted her body to another area of the park before taking it to the Larimer County Medical Examiner’s Office.
