His year-old son, Richard Jr. Thomas Goman, his judgment impaired by cold and fatigue, pressed climbers from Oregon Episcopal School to continue far beyond the point where they should have turned back. But Haeder said the school is unfairly trying to place the blame on Goman instead of accepting responsibility for the incident.

Parents of some of the other victims were supportive of school officials and Goman. It provided my son with a lot of excellent benefits.
Everyone who knew Tom will remember him as a clear thinker, a committed friend and a conscientious leader. Of the 19 climbers who started the hike at Timberline Lodge at 3 a. The rest climbed to above the 10,foot level by about 3 p. At night, the climbers dug a snow cave for protection.
The next day, one student, Molly Schula, and a guide, Ralph Summers, walked down the mountain to summon help. The following day, May 14, search parties found three climbers who had died from hypothermia. The other eight were found on May 15 in the snow cave. Only two, Brinton Clark and Giles Thompson, survived.
After the incident, school officials appointed five committee members, including nationally recognized climbing experts, to investigate the tragedy and the Basecamp program. It said time pressure made the climbers unwilling to delay the expedition, even though the forecast called for bad weather.
The report says the climbers should have had better boots and clothing, more shovels and bivouac sacks and should have carried an altimeter and a topographical map of the mountain. The report also says that the ratio of two trained guides to 17 other climbers was insufficient. The school will resume the program early next year under a full-time director.
Manson, headmaster of the small private school in Portland, said yesterday that while the school will continue its commitment to wilderness education, it will suspend the wilderness program for six months. One goal of that program is for sophomore students to at least attempt to climb Mount Hood. Last spring, a climbing party became stuck in a snowstorm.
Nine students and faculty members died of exposure on the mountain. Following that accident, the school formed a committee of climbing experts to investigate. Findings are to be released July Manson said the school will conduct a nationwide search for a full-time director for the Basecamp Program. July 18, , p. In a copyright story broadcast last night by KGW-TV, the station narrated excerpts of a report on the ill-fated climb.
The report was written by professional mountaineer Ralph Summers, who accompanied the group. It has not been publicly released. The television station quoted Summers, 30, as saying he discussed with the Rev.
Thomas Goman the option of turning back early in the May 12 ascent because another adult adviser, Marion Horwell, was having difficulty breathing. Tom at least wanted to make a token effort to the summit. In a raging spring blizzard, the group wrapped McGinness in a sleeping bag and another climber got inside to help warm him. Later, the boy was taken out of the sleeping bag, but he could not walk on his own. Summers and year-old student Molly Schula were able to reach help, but rescuers found only two survivors.
Penater said today he still has some questions about what happened on the climb but will wait until the end of the month - when the school is scheduled to release the results of its investigation into the accident - before coming to any conclusions.
That investigation is being conducted by four climbing experts, and Penater said he is confident that it will provide a detailed explanation of what went wrong on the climb. Vic Walsh, executive director of the program, said that Summers was hired before the Mount Hood accident to supervise two programs this summer.
After the fatal climb, Walsh said he and Summers agreed that he should limit his involvement with Outward Bound to non-supervisory activities until all the facts are in on the Mount Hood tragedy. July 17, , p. June 10, The school that sponsored the Mount Hood climbing expedition that claimed nine lives last month has formed an independent committee to investigate the disaster.
The five-member committee, which will include mountaineering experts from around the country, has been asked to issue a report by July 31, Mariann Koop, spokeswoman for Oregon Episcopal School, said yesterday. Seven students and two faculty members died after a spring blizzard on the mountain east of Portland on May Meanwhile, the two year-old climbers found alive in a snow cave continued to recover in Portland hospitals.

No date for her release has been set. June 10, p. May 22, Even as students and faculty from the Oregon Episcopal School eulogized their dead today, some of the most respected mountaineers in the Northwest were questioning the circumstances and decisions that led to the deaths of nine climbers on Mount Hood last week. They say the storm had been forecast and that the group should have been able to see it coming.
They also question the wisdom of trying to wait out a storm in a shallow snow cave without food or heat. Contrary to reports that the storm came up suddenly, weather forecasts had predicted a severe, extended storm.
The two questions mountaineers are asking most often are: Mike Volk, who operates Timberline Mountain Guides on Mount Hood, also canceled a scheduled climb because of the weather. Summers has also said that the storm came up suddenly. Whittaker, while refusing to place blame for the accident, was particularly critical of the explanation that the climbing party got hit by a surprise storm and was slowed down by a hiker with hypothermia. Whittaker said bad weather is never a good excuse for accidents in the Cascade Mountains, and that experienced guides should always be watching for hypothermia.
You only climb with the strength of your weakest member. He is a ski instructor there and is considered an experienced mountaineer by the Pacific Crest Outward Bound School in Portland.
The small, private school was closed today for the memorial service, and officials could not be reached for comment. Walsh said Summers had come to the Outward Bound school to talk privately with friends there about the accident. May 22, , p. May 16, From the moment she set foot on Mount Hood in the early dark Monday morning, year-old Courtney Boatsman had a weird, nagging feeling she should get off the mountain. Eventually, Courtney listened to that voice and became one of the five young climbers and a parent to turn back before the cloudless sky suddenly turned white with blinding snow and wind.
That night she would be among the first to notify school authorities that the climbing team still on the mountain must be in trouble. In the end, only four of the climbing mates she tried to help - two who walked out and two among those found in an ice cave by rescuers - would survive. But for a few hours that sunny Monday morning, the athletic teen-ager resisted the urge to quit.
It was beautiful climbing weather and she felt warm and strong. Then, halfway up, her back began to hurt, the result of hours of throwing the javelin and discus at school. And her friend, Lorca Fitschen, unexpectedly became sick, hunched over and crying from a previous injury aggravated by the strenuous climb.

Tom Goman, teacher at the school and leader of the person party, asked Courtney to consider quitting to take Lorca back down the mountain. Hilary Spray, also ill, already had descended with her mother and would leave for home. She and Lorca left their schoolmates, who were exuberant, an optimism fed by feeling prepared and by knowing that the trek had been successful 36 times before. The climb by sophomores is part of Basecamp, a four-year, high-school-level program required for graduation from the small private school.
If a student elects, for good reason, not to make the climb, he or she must complete 40 hours of community service. Most choose Mount Hood. No one is forced to reach the top. But they must complete the training courses and then climb far enough to get a taste of the mountain with a pack on their back. Students get hands-on experience with ropes, carabiners, harnesses and slings, plus instruction on different ways to save oneself using an ice axe.
Two weeks ago Goman climbed the mountain, to determine how and where winter weather might have made the trek too difficult. Each climber had to wear three pairs of wool socks, layers of clothing and carry an extra pair of gloves. Students were checked for this equipment before boarding the bus Sunday night, said Boatsman.
Later, she was told, Goman would give up all his extra clothing to the kids on the climb. When Courtney and Lorca left the group Monday morning, Goman told them they could expect the rest of the climbers back by 6 p.
A few hours later, the young women were joined by two other climbers: That afternoon the four fooled around at the lodge, occasionally going outside to view their classmates in steady ascent. Courtney, her close-cropped, curly-haired head held high, calmly stood in the lobby offering strength and comfort to kids who often approached her near tears. A tragedy like this, she explained, must be dealt with gently. This morning, Lynn Boatsman said she still has such faith in the school and the climb that she would send either of her daughters up again.
May 14, Three climbers stranded during a school-sponsored climb on Mount Hood were found this morning, and doctors were attempting to revive them, authorities said.
Eight others from the party stranded on the mountain since Monday remained missing. Jonathan Hill told Anderson the three had body temperatures of about 45 degrees Fahrenheit when they were brought in. They were being slowly warmed and kept alive on life-support systems. The climbing group was from Oregon Episcopal School in Portland.
Williams said it was not known if the three hospitalized climbers were adults or teen-agers. More than two dozen relatives of the missing people had gathered in a day lodge at Timberline by late morning today, waiting for word of those still missing. Hospital officials said there is a chance the three climbers could be revived. The climbers, whose names were not released, were officially listed in critical condition.
The search for the missing climbers focused on the southeast flanks of the mountain where 45 people and two helicopter crews searched through the day, authorities said. The remaining members of the climbing party have been stranded since Monday when hazardous weather enveloped the mountain.
