All stranded climbers safely down Mount Hood

Search and rescue crews responded to a fallen climber and a stranded group of climbers on Mount Hood on Tuesday. "There's some rock fall and ice fall hazard and whatnot".

"All told, seven climbers in two groups have been taken down or off the mountain", the Clackamas County Sheriff's office confirmed on Twitter Tuesday night. He came across one of the man's climbing partners, who was also trying to reach him, and offered him his medical kit before continuing his descent. That's at an elevation of approximately 10,500 feet.

Rescuers reached more than a half-dozen climbers stranded by tumbling rocks and falling ice on Oregon's tallest peak before expected heavy snow makes conditions even more treacherous.

Mr Talley, who said he has climbed the mountain about 20 times and has never seen worse conditions, said he tried to reach the man, but the ice was too unsafe.

Rescuers depart Timberline Lodge in a snow tractor on Tuesday, Feb. 13, 2018. His name has not been released.

Oregon's tallest peak rises above the streets of downtown Portland, its gorgeous snow-capped slopes luring 10,000 climbers a year. Temperatures were above freezing at Timberline Lodge, where climbers start their ascent.

"This is the kind of weather conditions and the time of year where you often get falling ice, falling rocks and problems", he added.

"I'm ecstatic that my son is down and safe and I'm very sorry for the family of the climber that was lost", Posekany said.
