The guy who found the corpse posted about it on some facebook groups. Same guy that posted the photos of shepherds pass about a week ago that were linked on this board. No other info other than that.

It sounds like someone trying to do a late season JMT or early season PCT hike without being prepared for the cold." onclick=";return false;" onclick=";return false;

I was driving s/b on 395 yesterday, heard then saw a CHP heli land at Lone Pine a/p mid morning. Thought SAR; but no vehicle/people met it for 5+ mins on the ground. I moved on.... Maybe a followup visit to the pass?
