Rainier climbers improving at Harborview

Two Canadian climbers who were airlifted to Harborview Medical Center after falling into a crevasse on Mount Rainier Sunday were reported awake and improving at the hospital this morning.

The two men, whose identities have not been released, are in serious condition and  remain in intensive care, said Harborview spokeswoman Susan Gregg.

A third climber in the group, less severely injured, was taken by ambulance to a different hospital. That climber’s condition wasn’t available .

A Mount Rainier National Park spokesman said the three fell into the crevasse at 11,400 feet on the Emmons Glacier, 3,000 feet below the mountain’s summit.
