    These mountains are in my "backyard". I have not hiked Mount SJ, but I know a lot of people who have. There are multiple ways up the mountain. Hiking it is definitely not for anyone who is out of shape or for someone who isn't familiar with hiking difficult terrain. Pretty much every year there is at least one rescue off of the mountain because someone got lost. A young couple even set a fire a few years back because they were lost. They had come across another missing hiker's items (he was deceased) and used them to help start the fire. People I know who have climbed it say it's easy to lose the trail and get lost if you leave it.
    I suspect he either became lost or injured and is still on the mountain, hidden by the dense brush and trees. However, he could have also chosen to leave and perhaps never climbed the mountain. It's curious to me that he wanted to be dropped off where he did. You can get much closer to trail heads, but there might also be a trail head in that area. Whitewater has lots of trails, including the PCT.
