3 climbers missing on Mount Hood
PORTLAND — Rescue crews searched Saturday for three climbers missing on Oregon’s Mount Hood after they sent a text message.
The Clackamas County sheriff’s office said the two men and one woman were experienced and well-equipped.
Sheriff’s spokesman Detective Jim Strovink said the climbers were making a technical ascent of the mountain on the west side near Reid Glacier.
The glacier ranges in elevation from about 6,000 feet to 9,800 feet. The upper extent of the glacier is known for extensive crevasses.
The three were expected back at 2 p.m. Friday. They did not have a radio beacon but they did have a cell phone, and sent a text message at 1 a.m. Saturday.
