The Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office said at around 11:30 a.m., deputies were notified of a possible fall on Mt. Hood near the Hogsback climbing area.
Callers reported a man was severely injured after falling and sliding approximately 600 feet down steep terrain.
Rescuers were able to locate the patient, described only as a 32-year-old Seattle man.
Deputies said due to the severity of the man’s injuries, he was airlifted to a Portland-area hospital.
Once he arrived at the hospital, he was pronounced dead.
The identity of the man will not be released until his family has been notified.
