Roskelley died on descent after reaching the summit of Howse Peak in Banff National Park of the Canadian Rockies on 16 April 2019, with Austrian climbers David Lama and Hansjörg Auer. The group completed a difficult variation of a route on the east face of Howse Peak known as M-16 in under 7 hours. The Auer-Lama-Roskelley variation took a line to the left of M-16, after the first difficult waterfall pitch on that route. Their bodies were found on 21 April 2019.[12][13]
