Is he the Waggoner I climbed with? The age, name spelling, and locale, are all about right. Condolences and best of vibes to his family and friends.

Norwegian explorer Ivar Erik Tollefson, who led an expedition in Antarctica in 1994, and wrote a book about it, wrote to David: “We find your camming devices to be the best in the world.”

a very wonderful tribute, for leaving something very special behind...

I've been using his gear all week where nothing else would work, up on the upper Town Wall at Index. He knew what wall climbing needed and made it happen. Thank you David and rest in peace.

I didn't know him, but my condolences to his family and friends. Jeez, I am only 53, it is an age much too young to die. Let's raise a glass to his spirit.

I toast his inventiveness and loyalty of those who personally knew him. To be able to start and grow a business isn't an easy thing. As I'm 55 next month, I can only add that it annoys the hell out of me that the pussies don't publish the cause of death any more.

Bon voyage Dave, see you on the other side soon...
