Yosemite NP:
"Alice" Yu Xie was a 41-year-old Asian female, less than 5 feet tall, less than 100 pounds, with neck-length black hair. She was wearing a black shirt, a striped red and black shirt, and either a grey hooded sweatshirt with "Yosemite Half Dome" on front or a black hooded insulated jacket, as well as black jeans. She was hiking with the small green backpack pictured here. She traveled to Yosemite from Mariposa, CA on the YARTS bus on January 14, 2021 and was a Chinese national living in the United States.
Update: "Alice" Yu Xie was reported overdue on Friday, January 15, 2021, after planning to hike to the top of Yosemite Falls. Searchers found her deceased at the base of Upper Yosemite Fall on Saturday, January 16. Next of kin have been notified.

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.
