Hello Everyone,

My name is Peter and we lost a fellow mountain man last year
in Oct in the Taboose Pass region of the Sierra. After the
official SAR effort a few of us at High Sierra Topix, where
I am a moderator (aka maverick), also went out looking for
several days for some sort of clue but were unsuccessful.
After going back and forth with SEKI NPS and Inyo NF for the
last few months they have allowed our request to search in Kings
Canyon and Inyo has waived the quotas on Taboose Pass.
We are looking for more experienced backpackers to volunteer for
this humanitarian search effort so we can bring closure for his
family and friends.

Info on the search can be found here:

If you are interested in participating please contact me at

Thank You,

Larry has been found. His body was found June 15-16th. He hiked over the pass during the storm, and set up camp below the pass, in a windbreak. His tent was not found, but it was not in his pack. The cause of death won't be known until tests are completed.
