Thanks for this thread and the chance to honour a young woman who achieved so much and held an equal measure of future potential for academic and outdoor achievements.

Incredible woman!! A real badass. Such a beaut. I can understand his agony

Deepest condolences to all you who knew her.

This accident and aftermath are simply awful.

How I wish we could turn the clock back.

Lives lived to the fullest & a tragic ending.

My life is poorer for having not known Inge or Hayden.

My condolences to family & friends.

Inge, so sad. She was hugely accomplished. Glad to see her name memorialized here. So sad for her parents.

I too offer my sincerest condolences and respect to Inge's family and friends.
Fritz said if for me.

I will only add that I hope in some small way our thoughts and prayers reach out and help surround her family with love.

Though many of us did not know Inge we all share a bit of her magic and know the feeling of being free and fully happy while in the mountains.

Thanks for posting this WyoRockMan. Awesome young woman. This whole thing is so upsetting.
At a time when so many of us feel the world is falling apart we need all the hope and inspiration we can find from our friends and peers, especially the young ones. The world feels much emptier now without Inge and Hayden.

wooffph, Family, Friends, Fans and those inspired . . .
this has suck'r punched the lot of us.

A tragedy,So young Too young

Beyond Shakespearean, a loss of the magnitude at a time of such world turmoil, it rises to the scale. . .

It is an un-imaginable sadness,
- an enveloping cloud of misery -
that has cloaked the tribe.

there are no words . . .

I didn't post to the thread about Hayden yesterday, because it all seemed too heartbreaking. I'm still heartbroken today, and I only met him one time briefly in El Cap Meadows. His stoke and friendliness were readily apparent. It seems as if he was following in the path of his father, especially in terms of his writing.

As a math teacher and climber I am saddened by the loss of Inge's potential that she surely would have shared with the world. I never met her, but she was obviously destined to do great things.

Two young folks that were inspirational because of the integrity that they lived by, in a world that sometimes seems so lacking in integrity. My thoughts are with the families of these two extraordinary human beings.

So very very sad. My deepest condolences to Inge's family and friends.
I knew her from xc skiing. Full of life's energy. RIP

Brutal cycles we go thru as adventurists. I've lived in the area many years...many 'avy' tales
The map foldline east of Imp peak I had my own worst, closest call. Recent Gallatin Avalanche report is done by "Alex and Doug" how does that not conjure another memory?
Last week I listened to The Alpinist podcast of Dave Roberts reading his recent essay and found it very interesting, highly recommended. Poignant and helpful.

Sounded like she was a very accomplished beautiful person. My thoughts go out to family and friends. This whole thing has had me in a fog for a couple of days even though I did not know either. I have spent s lot of time thinking about my own kids and climbing mountains. Not sure I would change anything but may try look at objective danger a little more seriously.

Lived well, passed early. NUTS!

Note to self. Let the snow consolodate a few weeks before skiing back country.

Somewhere in the distance, another new baby girl is born. She will live the same type of life but without the abrupt end.
