Two mountain climbers are presumed dead after attempting a new route in Alaska.

George "Ryan" Johnson, 34, of Juneau, and Marc-Andre Leclerc, 25, of Squamish, British Columbia, have been identified as the two mountain climbers. They both had experience.

They failed to return from a climb on a mountain.

An avalanche risk is preventing officials from locating the bodies.
