This is not the outcome we were all hoping for. RIP Joe, I hope his family can in time find comfort and peace.

Damn I hate sad endings to these things! RIP Joe... I hope you and your family are able to find peace with this!

Damn. I was watching the drama unfold here and hoping for the best. Like you, I really want to know what the heck happened, as I have hiked Grays and Torreys multiple times. I am sure we will know soon enough.
RIP Joe. God bless you and your family.
I need more dehydrogenase.

If it was a hiking accident then the cause may instruct other people to avoid it.
If it was something else, no need to mention it.

i think that until a credible news source reports Joe N as deceased, I wouldn't give up hope just yet. the 'deceased' post has been removed and was posted by an 'other' friend. so who knows? I hope that there will be some clarification soon.

His brother has a post on the FB page that seems very credible. Very sad to hear. RIP.

That's terrible. RIP Joe. My best wishes to the family.
Wrenching reminder to all of us how fragile we are.
Maybe, just once, someone will call me "Sir," without adding, "you're making a scene."
