Response to June 2005 Accidents/Recues


The Seattle Times reports Mike Berry fell 1,000 feet at Gibralter Chute on Rainier.

His companion Ryan Tillman spent several hours performing CPR on the 29-year-old Port Angeles firefighter before rangers arrived at the 11,350 foot location. He called 911 at 6:15 a.m. His body was airlifted off by helicopter.

He is the third climber to die this season on the mountain.
