ORIGINAL STORY – A 32-year-old climbing guide from Redmond Oregon died following a fall on Mount Shasta on Monday.

Jillian Elizabeth Webster was unresponsive after falling and receiving CPR from a nearby climbing nurse. Webster was transported by CHP helicopter to Mercy Mount Shasta where she was later pronounced dead.

Webster was tied down with two other climbers while ascending the mountain above Lake Helen. One of the climbers slipped, dropping the trio about 1,500 to 2,500 vertical feet onto snow and ice.

The climber was in critical condition after suffering an open fracture to his lower leg, as well as head trauma. He was transported by CHP helicopter to the parking lot and transferred to an air ambulance for a flight to Mercy Mount Shasta where he was reportedly under observation and recovering on Monday evening.

The climber was alert and fractured his lower leg. She was also airlifted to the Ski Bowl parking lot, where she was transferred to an ambulance and taken to Mercy Medical Center Mount Shasta. She was reportedly under observation and recovering.

This incident was reported shortly after 8:30 a.m. on Monday, June 6. It was the first of three such rescue efforts the Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Office would conduct on Monday.

The second incident was reported shortly after 12:30 p.m.

A man climbing over Lake Helen fell about 1,000 feet. U.S. Forest Service rangers contacted the injured climber and helped him partially descend. When he could not continue, the CHP helicopter transported him to Mercy Medical Center Mount Shasta. His recovery status is unknown at this time.

At approximately 4:00 p.m., a woman who was climbing with the fallen man just after 12:30 p.m. also slipped and fell about 1,000 feet. The CHP helicopter was used to bring down a nearby climbing ranger. The woman was then airlifted to Mercy Medical Center Mount Shasta. His condition is unknown at this time.






All three rescue efforts were conducted in the Avalanche Gulch area on Mount Shasta.

Shortly after 11:15 a.m. today, the Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Office launched a fourth rescue attempt for an injured mountain climber in the same area as yesterday’s incidents. A climber said he broke his ankle.

Due to unstable conditions, the Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Office is urging people to check with USFS climbing rangers before planning to climb Mount Shasta.

Several agencies were involved in the rescue efforts, including Siskiyou County Search and Rescue (SAR), United States Forest Service (USFS) Climbing Rangers, California Highway Patrol (CHP) Air Operations H-14 Crew, Mount Shasta Ambulance, and Mount Shasta City. Firefighters.
