Mt. Hood Rescue: Climber Found in Good Condition

iStockphoto/Thinkstock(PORTLAND, Ore.) -- Rescuers have reached a climber stranded in a blinding snowstorm on Oregon's Mount Hood.

Officials say 30-year-old Jeff Kish had drained his phone's battery because he kept posting messages and pictures on Facebook.

A 13-person search team was able to find him overnight in good condition at 6,000 feet.

He got stuck at 10,000 feet after a storm moved in.
