They found our brother today, not SAR, but a friend who wouldn't give up searching when SAR did. He died on Mt. Mcloughlin from a head injury and possibly exposure. He was very experienced and on a routine day hike. Please be careful and always tell someone where you are going. We are very, very sad. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.
The Zazzara family.

So sorry to hear about this. I'm going to start leaving more detailed route information starting on my next outing. I have no excuse for not doing so and would hate to have my loved ones posting the same warning we hear so many times. My prayers are with your family.

Very sorry to here about this development. I am very very sorry for your lose. I hope that this will raise awareness and everybody will leave detailed information when they head to the back country. Even better, take a partner. Hopefully this may save a life or limp for someone else.

Some local folks here in the south SF bay area have regaled me with stories of John's exploits, and I've read something of him on climber.org. Rest in peace sir.

I was an ice/alpine climbing partner of John's. The man was an expert climber whos range of knowledge and abilities I respected more than anyone I have climbed with. John was an amazing climber and a hell of a guy. He had that spark of life that is rare. I'll miss the crazy old bastard.
