id=303557] One year ago, that's when Ian was diagnosed with cancer. He has been gone for 6 months. Trevor and I decided to skydive in his honor, and at the same time, give a BIG F-U to cancer!!

I'll be bringing Ian's brand new Petzl helmet and pair of brand new, large Metolius Wall gloves down to the Valley with me if anyone wants them.

Guess who was up on the Zodiac on the first week of May---that's right: Ian Gill. Or at least his rivet hangers--and spirit.

I spread Ian's ashes on the Bridge, up on Sunkist, on the summit of El Cap and at the top of Zenyatta Mondatta. He'll wake up to a beautiful view every morning!

Maiden voyage for Ian's gear. I thought the first time I would use this equipment would be on a big-wall-type adventure. As it happened, their destiny was to be indoors for the first time out. But the experience was remarkably rewarding.

I received the Metolius Wall Sacks via Mark Hudon. I thought I was going to bring along Ian's bird-beak piton for some extra mojo, but it kept jabbing me in the ass! For sure, it will come along on another trip, when the time is right.

Arthur and Abby. I think the last time Arthur was on rope was rappelling out of a helicopter in ROTC. He was later seen cranking fiercely on the lower reaches of the bouldering wall.
