Another Climber Falls On Mount Hood
Authorities say a climber has fallen on Mount Hood, and rescuers are headed for the site. The Clackamas County sheriff's office said Thursday the report of the fall near the Hogsback came about 9:30 a.m.
Last Thursday, a climber fell about 1,000 feet in the area on the south side of Mount Hood. It was the second climbing death of the year on the peak 50 miles east of Portland.
