Pair trapped in snow cave on Mount Rainier wait for rescuers.

Search and rescue teams plan to hike back onto Washington's Mount Rainier after daybreak Tuesday, hoping to rescue a pair of snowboarders who have been trapped for two days.

One search team was within half-mile of the snowboarders Monday and spoke to them, but were unable to reach the cave the snowboarders took shelter in due to unstable conditions.

Rescuers are extremely concerned about potential hypothermia for the two men, Derek Tyndall, 21, and Thomas Dale, 20.
