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.

SAR is still searching between Taft and Glacier Point, and down towards Illilouette Falls bridge. He was alone, no evidence that he was planning an overnight trip. Any information you may have, please call: 209/379-1992.

Yosemite NP:

Yosemite National Park Rangers have positively identified the remains of Gerardo Cruz Hernandez, from Santa Barbara, California, who was last reported at Glacier Point on November 22, 2017. When he was reported missing, Park Rangers, with the aid of search dogs and a CHP helicopter, launched an extensive search looking for him. The search has been ongoing.

Hernandez’s family has been notified.

Yosemite National Park worked with several agencies during the search effort and would like to acknowledge and thank the California Highway Patrol, Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office, YODOGS (volunteer search dog team), and National Park Service Special Agents for their assistance with this search.
