Elite team heads up Mount Rainier in nasty storm to search for 4 missing climbers and campers on 01/24/2012 01:01:05 MST Print View

An elite mountain rescue team headed up Washington’s Mount Rainier on Thursday to search for four people missing in a vicious storm while frantic relatives awaited any word on their fate.

The 10 experienced mountaineers were looking on a portion of the intended route of a pair of overdue campers and two climbers who were trying to summit the 14,410-foot volcano. The rescuers reached Camp Muir at the 10,000-foot level by midday Thursday, where they planned to spend the night.
