SALEM, Ore. (AP) -- A memorial service was held Friday afternoon for the Salem dentist who died climbing Mount Hood.

The service for Kinley Adams on Friday afternoon included a chance for friends to share their memories of the experienced climber who was on a solo ascent of the mountain in June, but never returned.

His body was recovered on Sunday night.

The Oregon state medical examiner's office says the 59-year-old suffered multiple injuries in a fall.

Adams was on Mount Hood in preparation for a climb in Nepal.
