Thanks Werner and all of the YOSAR bunch for taking care of my good bud Marc, he is doing well and happy to be with his family. Thanks Jim and Madaline for giving him comfort.

Traditionally mountains were seen as barriers - to trade - to interaction - to learning. Those who ventured into the mountains were seen to be on a quest, for some sort of spiritual enlightenment. Monasteries were created in the mountains to allow for separation from the world, folks isolated themselves into the mountains to escape the pressure of every day life and those with a spirit of adventure went to the mountains to get above the fray of every day life.
The quest for spiritual enlightenment is often fraught with peril, and who among us who has seen the heights, who's cleaned that move, who's come through that "near miss" or has been belayed beautifully by a friend hasn't felt that sense of oneness with the universe? Isn't that why we head to the high country?
When a climber passes doing what he / she loves to do I'd like to believe that in the last instant of their fragile existence they find what they were seeking. It may be transient, and it may not help those of us left behind, but I really believe that it's true.
No, I'm not religious by any stretch of the imagination, but I do feel a spiritual connection to the earth when I climb - I know I could be taken at any time - but I accept the danger for the enlightenment that I find.
I hope that all those impacted by the events of this past week find solace and comfort - and keep climbing.

Peace

Larry Bruce...

I didn't know renzo was you! Hope you're doing well, and once again, condolences for your friend.

Your bud from way back when,

Thanks Kevin, great to hear from you. Hearing from old friends from the loss of Mason would make Mason very Happy.

From elcappic's Tom Evans.

In this spot (15 feet left and a bit below the heart) Mason Robison came to rest

Know that the one you loved is honored

Neebee, PM me if you haven't found your contact and I can put you in touch.

They have Marc's age as 28, which I'm sure should be 48. Sorry Marc, we all age eh?
