Rescuers hurried to Oregon's tallest mountain Tuesday after a climber fell almost 1,000 feet and seven others were stranded near the summit.

An Oregon National Guard spokesman said that climber was estimated to have fallen 700 to 1,000 feet.

Deputies said up to eight climbers remain stranded on the mountain and that one has injuries that are not believed to be life-threatening.

Rescuers reached several stranded climbers Tuesday on Mount Hood, Oregon's tallest peak, according to the Associated Press.

Jensen added that "the ascent and descent from that location they describe as severely hazardous with falling rock and falling ice". Rescuers continue to scale Oregon's tallest peak Tuesday to help those still trapped.

Mount Hood is reportedly not a popular destination in February, but a dry winter has caused more climbers to attempt to climb the mountain.

The route which is generally the one taken to the summit and is the most risky area on the mountain, Lucas said.

Climbers on the Hogsback Trail had signaled for help with emergency blankets while performing on the downed climber for nearly two hours, CBS affiliate KOIN-TV reports.

The group had enough food and water to last the day. Rescuers used a sled and a rope system to bring down a woman in the party who said she was unable to move.

The other climbers will be assisted by Mountain Rescue or the ski patrol, Lucas said. The sun has been out this week, and the temperature was well above freezing Tuesday at Timberline Lodge.

Major Chris Bernard of the 304th rescue squadron out of Portland said 14 rescue specialists were sent to the mountain, in conjunction with other groups.

"Really hard in these kind of rough ice conditions to kind of maneuver that down, that patient was very good and very stoic in that situation because that was not easy", said Rollins.

"It's going to get darker, it's going to get colder, it's going to get windier and the overall conditions will worsen at night", Jensen said.

"This is the worst climbing day I've experienced for sure, condition wise", Peck said.
