DARRINGTON, Washington — An injured climber who fell while ascending Dome Peak in the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest has been rescued.
Snohomish County Sheriff's spokeswoman Shari Ireton says search-and-rescue crews responded after an emergency beacon alert was picked up about 4 p.m. Sunday.
A rescue helicopter was dispatched to the area and found the climber, who had possible rib fractures from falling and landing on the lip of a crevasse.
The man was flown to Cascade Valley Hospital in Arlington Sunday night. His name, age and condition weren't immediately available.
