A GP plunged 300 feet to his death when revisiting a mountain ridge in Cumbria where he had proposed to his wife nearly three decades earlier.
Dr Jamie Butler, who worked as a medic for Manchester City football club, fell from Striding Edge in the Lake District last November.
An inquest heard he fell when mist descended on the mountain, resulting in poor visibility.
Dr Butler, 54, proposed to his wife Margaret on the same spot 27 years earlier in 1994, she said.
The couple, from Altrincham in Greater Manchester, had been walking up the mountain together to revisit the beauty spot.

A search was conducted and Dr Butler's body was discovered near Nethermost Cove some three hours later.
