Apparently, he had reached the summit and was just starting his way down. :(

The elevation reported in the article (13,500 ft.) suggests that the accident occurred just below Trail Crest on the east side of Whitney's South Ridge. Deepest sympathy to family and friends. May Yukio rest in peace forever, and may his memory always be a blessing.
