Climber Sadly Fell 500 Feet To His Death Below On This Mountain

“At approximately 10:31 a.m., the first deployed teams made contact with witnesses while making their way to the fallen climber,” they continued in the statement.

“They made visual contact with the fallen climber, who was unmoving, then made their way down to the fallen climber by setting up rope systems, while also checking toxic-gas levels to ensure rescuers could safely reach the subject.”

“Upon reaching the climber, rescuers found the subject deceased. The mission then became a recovery mission.”

“Teams loaded the body onto a skiable rescue litter basket, and at 4:20 p.m. they began making their way down the mountain to Timberline Lodge.”

Right now, authorities are not yet releasing the name of the man in light of the fact that they haven’t informed all of his family members.
