Ten climbers have died scaling the state's tallest mountains this season, a possible record for tragedy in the increasingly popular pursuit of 14,000-foot peaks.
Yet, with the number of Colorado peak-baggers reaching 500,000 every season by one group's estimate, the number of fatalities per 1,000 hikers could actually be declining.
