Gear spotted, but Friday search finds no sign of Mount Hood climber

PORTLAND — Crew members aboard an Oregon National Guard helicopter spotted rope and a spike while searching for a climber who has been missing on Mount Hood since last weekend.

It’s unknown if the items belong to Kinley Adams, but they are the first potential clues rescuers have found in their six-day search.

The avalanche risk from warm temperatures prevented ground searchers from investigating further Friday. They plan to return to the site when it’s colder, at 2 a.m.

The Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office says the items were found off the route Adams was expected to take.

Adams, a 59-year-old Salem dentist, is an experienced climber. He was reported missing last Saturday night.
