Japanese National Found Dead in Grand Teton National Park Worked In San Jose

SAN JOSE (CBS SF/BCN) -- The National Park Service said this week that a man found dead on a mountain climbing route in Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming over the weekend was identified as a Japanese national who worked in San Jose.

Hitoshi Onoe, 42, was found Saturday by park rangers at the base of the Black Chimney climbing route on Teewinot Mountain.

The park service said Onoe appeared to have been climbing alone with the intent of going up the East Face route on the mountain, based on a marked map found with him.

The Japanese consulate has contacted Onoe's family in Japan to notify them of his death, according to the park service. No other details were immediately available about what caused his death.
