Mount Rainier ranger killed in climbers' rescue

Mount Rainier National Park says a climber who spent the night on the mountain after an accident has started walking down with rangers.

Spokeswoman Patti Wold says the park still hopes a helicopter will be able to pick her up and recover the body of a ranger who was killed Thursday during the rescue of three other members of her climbing team.

Wold says the weather may prevent the Chinook from Joint Base Lewis-McChord from flying. It's raining at the ranger station at Longmire. The National Weather Service says it's snowing above 10,000 feet.

That's the elevation where 34-year-old Ranger Nick Hall landed after a 3,000-foot slide.
