Jeff was the inspiration for SushiFest. He made a comment here on The Taco about images of sushi I was sharing and the next thing I knew Ron O had us making the marginally dumb idea to hold the event at Snow Canyon. Jeff attended. It was my first time meeting the greatest Alpine climber we've ever known. I was shocked to see he needed help walking. I had no idea of his crippling disease. It was such a struggle to witness how his body gave up. But the soul that is Jeff never did. At one point he literally willed himself off of his O2 tanks.

Rest easy my friend.

No, Kim, YOU'RE the best; as is L, and DR, Hobo, Tar-man,Hanklor and so on and so on. This mutual fascination we have for steep places opens our senses to each other. We can begin to see or sense the truth behind the facade called reality.

Werner, of course, is one of my personal heroes. But heroes, too, are a facade.

So sad to see this news. Truly an original bad-ass. Rest well Jeff. You certainly deserve it.

I am deeply saddened to hear that Jeff died. Yesterday we lost Tom Frost. I met them both at their Ama Dablam base camp after their successful climb in 1979. They were such humble, caring ang inspiring people. You will be missed Jeff Lowe. My best wishes go out to Connie Self who took such great care of Jeff. over the past 8 years. Condolences to family and friends. You will be missed Jeff
