Condolences to friends and family.
There seems to be a high number of accidents/fatalities in Utah over the last year. Be safe folks!!

If it were not dangerous, everyone would do it.

This guy took one for the team.

May you jump again in the next life.

Gotta wonder if the Sweet Spot was being scouted by Earl when his plane crashed in Mineral.

i'm missing too, man.
the people, they look at me
and they see right thru me.

my wifey, she can't connect with me,
i'm too far removed from any presence
or being.

i ate shite and died,
and i'm just standing here.

i still fill shoes;
i still crank the handle
on my model a life;
i putter about,
and dream and drool,
but life as life should be is not mine.

fatality is by definition,
an accident.
a suicide is purposeful.
and life?
it's just a trickle-down death cycle.

i'm sorry for your sorrow, hank.

Always rough when loved ones get the chop. My sympathy to his near and dear family and friends. We go out into a risky world and rejoice upon return, grieving those who leave us behind.

Agree with Coz, the Summer always comes at the cost of spring melt.

We are all human, these things are difficult to wrap our heads around. We are climbers and BASE jumpers here, flawed humans like everyone else. This sh#t will happen regardless of how we interpret it and we each have our ways of grasp it.

The long days of summer will bring peace and reflection, and if we can take something positive away from that, something about the preciousness of life and the vibrancy of a good friendship... well that's all we can really hope for.

The Larry should be safe, as he posted up on FB yesterday afternoon, and the young man in the article jumped on Friday. (?)

I have no idea who has passed away... my sincere condolences to family and friends of this young man.

No more fighting on this thread, please. No reason for it, esp when a life has been lost. We should be reaching out in support, not lashing out on one another.

~peace, always.
