A rescue was underway this morning for a climber caught in a small slide on Mt. Hood. The climber was stranded about 100 yards west of the Hogsback, a popular climbing route for climbers trying to reach the peak.

"So we were just going to send a person up the mountain to assist carrying this person off the mountain."  Clackamas County Sheriff's Office spokesman Sgt. Jim Strovink says the woman was alert but has injuries to her back and face. She was with a group of about 12 climbers. May and June are the most popular months for climbing Mt. Hood due to the combination of more reliable weather plus deep snowpack.
