While attempting to climb one of the tallest peaks in the US, a CLIMBER Chun Hui Zhang fell to his death.

Chun Hui Zhang, a 52-year-old Canadian, was found dead after falling from Washington’s Mount Rainier.

The Disappointment Cleaver route is a well-known climbing route found on the south side of Mount Rainier. On Monday, witnesses claimed to have seen a guy fall as he was making his way down the route, according to the National Parks Service.

According to the NPS, it is the most popular summit route, having been used in 75% of all attempts.

According to an NPS press release announcing his death, Zhang, a resident of Surrey in British Columbia, was killed while climbing the mountain’s summit for fun with companions.

Zhang’s descent from the mountain’s circumstances have not been made public to this point.

Several unsuccessful attempts to locate the climber after the authorities were alerted were made but they were unable to reach him that day.

“Zhang was located the following day by a team of NPS rangers,” NPS said.

“Using an NPS-contracted helicopter, rangers were able to access and extricate the climber’s body. Guides and staff from International Mountain Guides and Rainier Mountaineering, Inc. provided valuable assistance with the incident.”

Mount Rainier forms part of the Cascade Mountain range, approximately 100 miles southeast of Seattle and according to the National Park Service, the Disappointment Cleaver route can provide “some unique advantages and hazards for recreational climbers.”

“Climbers often underestimate the physical requirement needed to successfully and safely climb Mount Rainier,” a route briefing about the Disappointment Cleaver route says.

“Bad weather is another major factor in turning climbing parties back.

“Climbing into poor weather leads to a majority of the accidents on Mount Rainier even though these conditions are easily forecasted.

“Inexperience with steep and glaciated terrain is also a contributing factor to aborted climbing attempts.”
