She was planning on joining us in Jtree for Tx this year, and was counted in the number I relayed on Lynne's thread. She was a fan of Spiderman, Cherry Bomb, and some others. Those who have grunted their way through the final OW section of that 10A in Conan's Corridor can imagine my mid-life angst at seeing her lithe frame float up it like it wasn't even there. Oh, and I never understood Japanese Plum wine until she handed me a swig on a late eve at the foot of the Water Cracks in TM. Those who knew her, come find us. We will at least do a climb in her honor.

The more I ponder this, the sadder it makes me. She was a super-spunky gal. She was always stoked to climb with me, loved to party (IHCC member), was always a member of our climbing trips. Some of you may remember her from Facelift 2008.

We suffered a big blow in this community. Our tribe suffers today.

Last week she came by the house and had beers with us and played with my son, talked about Jtree this coming thanksgiving. We need to have a memorial this year during the trip.

This really sucks. If I know her though, she would insist we have a good time. Maybe drink some plum wine in tribute.

Hey guys...

I'm very sorry to hear you lost a friend. I don't think I knew her, but I'm sitting here worried and racking my brain for all my climbing gal pal friends who I haven't seen in a bit, and wondering if I might have shared a rope with her at some point in the past.

At the very least, it sounds like I would have liked her.

The nicest thing you can tell a friend, about a friend, is that they would like your friend!

Sharing friends ranks up there with one of the greatest gifts mankind can give!

I love you guys!

I am SO sorry for our loss.

We are smart

We are nice

We love each other!

Be smart

Be nice

LOVE EACH OTHER!

Just got home from work, and saw this thread took a turn for the worse. My condolences to all friends and family of this person for your loss. I so wish this had turned out differently.

I was just thinking this morning after reading the last article by Johnny Copp and Michah Dash that it sure would be nice to have a missing climber report turn out on a positive note. This really is horrible to read.

I will be praying for her friends and family.

Condolences to her family and friends, so sad.
Maybe someone, when the time is right, could post a pic of your friend.
