If you match that blue dot with satellite images (Gmap4 link), you can see there is a pretty rugged chute there. But I agree that Likely would have had to traverse a more gentle drainage and get really high to fall into that chute.

At the apparently slow pace, it could easily have taken him that hour to get to those switchers above Trailside. Making it more probable to miss the trail there and less that he would leave the trail intentionally.

Wherever you go, there you are.

I do not like to remove/delete posts, however, I felt that I needed to in the case of possible unauthorized/misunderstood/potentially damaging information being passed along before it had been confirmed/officially released et al.

The body betrays and the weather conspires, hopefully, not on the same day.
