A man dies after falling while climbing Mount Rainier with Friends.

The National Park Service said that a Canadian man’s corpse was found this week after he fell on Monday while hiking Mount Rainier.

On Mount Rainier’s south side, while descending the Disappointment Cleaver path, witnesses claimed to have seen a climber experience a “serious fall.”

Mountain climbing instructors and rangers made many failed attempts to find the climber.

On Tuesday, National Park Service rangers used a helicopter to find and remove his remains.

The climber was eventually recognized by the National Park Service as Chun Hui Zhang, 52, of Surrey, British Columbia. According to authorities, Zhang was climbing a private recreational mountain with friends.

The International Mountain Guides and Rainier Mountaineering, Inc. employees received praise from the National Park Service for their “great help” during the event.

Since official records began to be maintained, more than 400 individuals have passed away at Mount Rainier National Park, according to data collected by the National Park Service as of 2022. A quarter of the fatalities happened as people were climbing the active volcano-shaped peak.

The largest glaciated summit in the contiguous United States, Mount Rainier is 14,410 feet above sea level and the source of five significant rivers.
