Rangers at Mount Rainier National Park say Monday, July 2, may be the next opportunity to retrieve the body of climbing ranger Nick Hall.
“Current forecasts indicate Monday may provide a short window of opportunity for a safe recovery,” National Parks spokeswoman Barb Maynes said Saturday.
Rangers attempted to retrieve Hall from Mount Rainier on Thursday, but were
forced to call off the mission due to high winds and deteriorating weather.
Hall died on June 21 while responding to a rescue of four
injured climbers on Mount Rainier. All four climbers were safely evacuated from the mountain.
