Body Found On Muir Snowfield

On Monday, August 6th, rapidly melting snow on the lower reaches of the Muir Snowfield revealed a man’s body at the 8,000 foot level about a half mile above Pebble Creek. It appeared that the body had been under the snow for some time. A party descending from Camp Muir spotted the body within sight of the trail and notified rangers, who recovered it the following day. Although his identity has yet to be determined by the county medical examiner, it’s possible that he may be one of the four climbers lost during storms last January. Warm weather is expected to continue rapidly melting snow in the area over the next month or two, which may uncover evidence related to the missing climbers. The search for the four missing climbers is still active and ongoing on a limited basis. Searches are conducted during scheduled flights in the park and as crews are in the area.
