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 at at the top of the backpacking section.

If you are interested in participating please contact me at

Thank You,

Good luck in your search Peter. I know how much it means to bring closure to such a tragic event.

I would join you if i was able to.

I wish you and all of the others taking on this noble task the very best of luck. Stay safe out there.

Inyo and Sierra Madre SAR went up this past weekend and found
Larry's shoe at the top of the pass not to far from the trail.
SEKI is looking now, hopefully there will be closure soon for
all involved.

The effort, time and commitment you're putting in to this endeavor is very commendable. I wish you all speed and safety, and that his  body is recovered soon, for all involved.
