Weather is delaying the rescue of an injured mountain climber on one of the Twin Sisters Mountains near Acme.

Whatcom County Undersheriff Jeff Parks says a man in his 60s fell near the 6,300-foot level before noon today.

His climbing partner had to hike to a lower elevation to call for help. The partner said it appeared the man had a severe head injury from the fall.

Search and rescue teams with the Whatcom County Sheriff’s Office and Bellingham Mountain Rescue are now waiting for the weather to clear up as they try to locate the fallen climber.
