SISTERS, Ore. (AP) - A 28-year-old Hillsboro man who fell to his death while climbing Mount Washington last week was an aspiring actor and church activist.

According to local media reports, Brian Robak had been a contractor at Big Lake Youth Camp near Sisters, where he had worked for the previous eight summers. The camp is affiliated with the Oregon Conference of Seventh-day Adventists.

An Oregon Army National Guard helicopter crew located Robak’s body on the 7,795-foot peak Saturday.

Robak set off to climb Mount Washington around noon Thursday and had reached the summit by about 4:30 p.m. But he didn’t return as planned that night, and camp officials called the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office early Friday to report him missing.
