It's always a bit troubling when someone 5 years younger than yourself dies. Even more troubling that this particular youth died.




Edit:


whoops!

zbrown! You say it very well!

I never met the man, but I admired the way he lived life large.

Best thoughts for Charlie.

One of my heroes growing up a climber. The man who climbed inside the rurp and was looking out. Rest in peace Charlie.

Too much. He was quite a guy.
RIP, but, hey, we're all gonna die.

You just don't want to go so quickly.

Along the lines of Fatdad's famous quote....

Charlie took the Rurp from a piece used as a 'last resort' to a staple on long, hard aid routes.

Here he is in recent years aboard his boat in those waters. His passing really is huge for many of us.

Skiing, solo, across crevassed glaciers with a shower rod suspended from his waist as a safety device!

One of those rare individuals that showed the rest of us what is possible and one that shifted a collective paradigm of climbing possibilities.

RIP Charlie.
