Does anyone know more? I just heard from a grief-stricken friend of the deceased but his details were foggy. It sounded like a 100' fall but by a follower in a group of three, with snow on route perhaps playing a role. Sincere condolences and comfort to friends and family, I am so sorry for your loss.

Wow, that's terrible. I was hoping to make a push up there that day, but iffy weather forecasts and concerns of lingering snowmelt scared me off.

Whatever the details, Angela was an amazing individual and I'm shocked that this happened. She was at my birthday challenge at the pinnacles and was such a positive, wonderful person to be around. Condolences to her friends and family. F*#k this is so sad.

Half Dome was really icy and dangerous over the last few days. I saw people heading up there and gave them all warnings and accurate route/ice info about this. One group of three really took it lightly I could tell they thought I was over cautious or some

Was this the group that posted on MP about not using the rope they had to leave due to the FF2? Sorry to hear she didn't make it.

canyoncat-- the fatality in this thread is different from the fall-factor 2 incident the weekend before.

No. I decided against going.

It's gave me a weird feeling to think about how close I was to being at the same place at about the same time as this accident.

This is really awful.

If there is something to be learned from this, at some point it would be helpful to hear more details about what happened. If not here, a report from those involved to ACcidents in NA Mountaineering.

My sincere condolences to family and friends.

Oh no! Another sad day for climbers. Peace to family and friends.

As I recall the first pitch is about 100'. Perhaps something went terribly wrong at the belay.

From fuzzy fifth-hand info it seemed the accident happened on the descent, but I have no idea if that info was correct. Speculation probably isn't too productive without more details. [Edit: apparently not the case, see karodrinker's post on page 2]

Condolences to family and friends; this is terrible news. It's been a rough few weeks.
