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.
