21 years old Jeffrey Dale’s body was recovered Monday from high on the slopes of Mount Jefferson, three days after he was reported missing.

According to his two climbing partners, they’d lost sight of Dale near the summit after he decided to push on, though the group turned back due to bad weather conditions.

According to news sources, Dale’s body was located – more than 1,800 feet below where he last was seen, indicating he likely fell during his climb. With the help of that helicopter, Eugene Mountain Rescue climbers were dropped off on the mountain and they worked together on a short-haul lift of the remains to a nearby landing zone.
