Colby grad among missing Rainier climbers
Associated Press


WATERVILLE, Maine (AP) — Officials say one of the six climbers who likely fell thousands of feet to their deaths while attempting to scale 14,410-foot Mount Rainier was a graduate of Maine's Colby College.

Colby spokesman Steve Collins said Massachusetts native Eitan Green graduated from Colby with a major in anthropology in 2009. He was a member of the college mountaineering club.

A memorial service is scheduled for June 5 in Levine Chapel in Brookline, Massachusetts.

The climbers were last heard from at 6 p.m. Wednesday when the guides checked in with their Seattle-based company by satellite phone. The group failed to return Friday.

They are presumed dead in one of the worst alpine accidents on Rainier since 1981, when 11 people were struck and killed by a massive ice fall.
