PMR Assists at Coe Glacier
Thursday, June 17, 2010

PMR responded to a request on Mt Hood’s north side. A group of five climbers/skiers were hiking up a popular-back country skiing area called Snow Dome. Bad weather rolled in leading to poor visibility on the mountain. One of the climbers, apparently not knowing the route, was separated from his group and accidentally traversed onto an exposed, steep area called the Coe Glacier. The climber allegedly fell to his death. PMR assisted in the body recovery. PMR recommends all climbers to maximize their familiarity with their accent and decent route options before embarking on climbs on Mount Hood.
