The body of a veteran climber who fell 1,500 feet into the crater atop Mount St. Helens was recovered Tuesday after he spent more than a day in the snow. Clouds and wind had hampered efforts to reach Joseph Bohlig, 52, who was posing for a picture Monday when a snow overhang gave way and he fell into the dormant crater. Bohlig was alive and blowing a rescue whistle after the fall. He had climbed the volcano 68 times before the accident, Cox said.
