A Surrey climber and two others were injured on Mount Rainier in Washington on the weekend.

Surrey climber injured after reportedly falling in Mount Rainier crevasse

Two men conscious but in serious condition in Seattle hospital.

Three climbers – one of them from Surrey – are in hospital recovering after falling into a crevasse on Mount Rainier on the weekend.

The Surrey man and another from Edmonton were airlifted off the Washington State mountain to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle in serious condition. The third man was less injured and taken to a different hospital.

The climbers’ names have not been released, but a hospital spokesperson said the two seriously injured men were both 31 years old and that both were conscious while in the hospital’s intensive care unit.

The climbers reportedly fell 15 metres into a crevasse on Emmons Glacier early Sunday morning (Sept. 1) while heading for the summit. A U.S. National Park Service news release said they were at about the 3,500-metre level on the 4,400-metre active volcano.

Another climbing team reported the incident and a crew of about three dozen worked on the rescue via helicopter.
