4 climbers and two guides from Alpine Ascents are believed killed in 3,300 foot fall on Rainier’s Liberty Ridge at about the 12,800 foot level. Park officials say the area is so treacherous that the bodies may not even be found. Among the casualties was guide Matt Hegeman. The worst accident was June 21, 1981, when 11 climbers were killed by an avalanche on Ingraham Glacier.
