I will raise a toast to Ishun this weekend, and be thinking positive thoughts for her friends and family.

The climbing memorial on Sunday will go down at Castle Rock State Park. I'm thinking that Shady Rock /Platypuss is a good area. It's got a high concentration of routes and she liked it there (that where some of the pics were taken upthread).

Cal Ridge and Mud Wall are close also. My crew will probably be there around 10 or 11am. We'll probably stay in that locale all day.

Carpooling is advised as much as possible because parking can get tight after 11am. If it does get tight people can park at Summit and shuttle together down to CRSP.

Be there!

I went on a hike down Cherry Creek Canyon with Ishun in September. It was the first time I'd met her, but she had a wonderful spirit and energy. My deepest condolences to her friends and family.

Somebody asked me to post this here. You can upload photos of her there also. The family would appreciate it.

Climbing all week, return to find this.
Sorry Sean. Sorry to these friends of Ishun. So sorry.
Cold all week, then snow.
Cold all this year, it feels now.
But we laughed and danced on the granite.
Drank and laughed and poured out wit and pulled close by the fire
And threw on more wood.
All we could do,
Simply all we want it sometimes seems,
And that is enough.
It is plenty and it is full,
And now some of our joy turns
To honor one of us I did not know
Because that too does not matter
Among this web
Of ascending
Family

Hello all,

my name's Irina, I used to climb with Ishun in 2007 during my internship stay in California (I am from Germany, originally Russia). This developed into a warm friendship we kept up via emails and chats.

I would like to share this with you. A song I wrote, while moved by the saddest news.

Irina, that's very beautiful. It amazes how many climbers Ishun knew. I thought she was truly 'ours', but it becomes very clear that she had many friends and climbing buddies. Maybe that's why she occasionally wasn't available when I'd call. She was out there doing the 'real' climbs while I was stuck in the Bay Area.

God bless her, that's what I would have been doing. She really loved the mountains, not just the climbing, but just hangin' with buddies on the trails.

Ya gotta love that. She was living the dream, man!

Irina also played a song in tribute to Wei Cui who died on Ama Dablam almost a year prior to Ishuns death.

Wei was a member of our tribe too. I'd climbed with him a few times. He joined us in Jtree one year and in Tuolumne. Rest in peace, Wei!

Wei and Ishun are prolly doing routes together now...They were good friends.

Be safe, lads!

We're still on today despite the morning 'wetness'. We'll meet up at Shady/Playpuss and if it's too moist or cold, we'll head for Cal Ridge and Mud Wall. We'll be at the entrance at 10;30.

Sorry I couldn't be there today for Ishun's memorial with you guys but I have Joyce's mother in town from Pilipinas. I'm sure it was a great memorial. Hope I can take part in the one at JTree in a few weeks.

It was a good time, I think Ezra has some pics. The two dudes who were there with Ishun on the climb were nice enough to show up and hang. Mucci showed too, nice to finally do some routes with him!

Good times! Ain't the same, really, without Ishun there but having her at heart and as a theme worked well. I'm absolutely sure she loved seeing us all to together today. From the beers to the hard sends, she was there and she was happy!

Rest in peace, Ishun, and try to spot us in Jtree on those night climbs. We love you.

Good times today with the crew at CRSP. I met some good people, Ishun was there in spirit.

To Dave and Patrick, Thank you for your words.

I heard it was beautiful on her day, for that many are thankful.
