The Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office identifies the man who was killed in a more than 700 foot fall on Mount Hood as 35-year-old Miha Sumi, of Portland. He moved to Portland from Slovenia five years ago.
Sumi fell in the area of Hogsback, at approximately 10,500 feet.
Other climbers had trouble getting down the mountain, because of the extremely icy conditions.
At least one other climber was hurt.
The Sheriff's Office activated a search-and-rescue operation to help the other climbers get off the mountain.
