Icy conditions reported

Posted: one year ago
The Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Office again coordinated rescue efforts for an injured climber Tuesday afternoon in the area of Avalanche Gulch on Mount Shasta. The latest accident, reported at 11:20 a.m. Tuesday, came on top of three climbing accidents reported Monday that included one death and four injuries. Conditions on the mountain likely were “icier than people probably expected,” said Charles Smith, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. However, it’s not unusual for it to be icy at this time of year, he added.
