An Army Chinook helicopter on Saturday found the body of a climber on Mt. Rainier after a two-day search that began with the discovery of his climbing partner’s frozen corpse.

The body of 26-year-old Peter Derdowski of Stateline, Nev., was found at the 9,400-foot mark of Carbon Glacier, a park spokesman said. Derdowski’s partner, 33-year-old Richard Mooney of South Lake Tahoe, Calif., was found dead below Liberty Cap on the 14,410-foot mountain Thursday.
