Stories like this make mountain climbing less and less appealing to me, and I try to remember them when I consider giving it a go. Even some of the most experienced climbers can't escape danger sometimes. So sad.
A helicopter flies past Illumination Rock near Reid Glacier over Mount Hood in search of two missing climbers as seen from Government Camp, Ore., Sunday, Dec. 13, 2009. The body of one climber was removed from the mountain Saturday as two climbers remain missing.
