He had been hiking with three other people when he got ahead of the group and began heading down the peak alone, NBC News reported.
His son reported him missing when he learned that his father never made it back to his base camp, officials said.
The next day, emergency officials sent a rescue helicopter to the mountain pass, where his body was found at approximately 7,300 feet, authorities said.
He was pronounced dead and hoisted from the scene, officials said.
