In a single car accident, Kim has left us while returning from a wonderful river trip in Idaho. More to follow.

Dennis Hennek and I spent 3 days climbing next to him and Jim Madsen while we established the psychedelic Wall on Sentinel Rock. We 4 had a wonderful time together yet apart. We are all somewhat poorer for his departure from this world. I will miss him.

Speechless over the loss.

Wow, sorry to hear of it but still, its the way of the world. Condolences to Kim's family and friends. He had a great run interspersed with some total baloney, may the the rest of us be so lucky. As the old ones step off, sadly, the rest of us now must take a step closer to the edge. The guy was (and is) an amazing legend.
