Climbers’ Bodies To Leave Yosemite Today

The bodies of two Japanese climbers found dead yesterday in Yosemite National Park are set to be brought out of the park today.

The climbers were caught by surprise in a blizzard and remain dangling from a rock face on El Capitan.

Yosemite spokeswoman Deb Schweizer says the pair was not moving when they were spotted, and didn´t seem to be well-equipped.

The Japanese men were part of a group of seven people visiting El Capitan when the storm hit Tuesday.
