3 bodies recovered from Mount Rainier identified

TACOMA — The Pierce County medical examiner has identified the bodies of three climbers recovered this week from Mount Rainier. They were part of a party of six who vanished on the Washington state peak last May.

They were identified Friday as 40-year-old Uday Marty, 40-year-old John Mullally and 26-year-old Mark Mahaney.

The six, all experienced mountaineers, included two guides and four climbers. They vanished in the last week of May on a technical, dangerous and little-used route up Liberty Ridge. Authorities believe they fell 3,300 feet on the 14,410-foot volcano.

Marty was a vice president and managing director of Intel in Southeast Asia who was based in Singapore. Mullally was a Seattle mountain climber. Mahaney was from St. Paul, Minnesota.

A helicopter equipped with a special mechanical claw plucked the bodies off a glacier at one of the most treacherous spots on the mountain in an area pummeled by falling ice and rocks.

The bodies of the two guides and remaining climber have not been found.
