Andres Delgado and Alfonso de la Parra, of Mexico, reported missing on Changabang in October. Extensive searches apparently found no trace. (This was from a thread that ended in early November, with no update.)

John Gilbert Patterson. Died in November of '05, but I will post his name anyway. My brother, my acoustic music other half, and the one who decided the same day I did to "become a rock climber." We had many years of climbing together, and many adventures.

Hans Gmoser, in a bicycling accident. A very accomplished alpinist in the 1950s and 1960s, did a great deal to promote heli-skiing and mountain guiding in Canada.

Even though he died in late 2005, a name that deserves mention is

Jean-Christophe Lafaille

Perhaps the greatest all-around climber of this era, and maybe ever. 8000 meters, A5, M9, 5.14, ED+, you name it, he did it. His death is a sobering reminder that even for the most talented climbers, the mountains are still king.

Norman B. "Ike" Livermore. Helped create Redwood National Park, stopped trans-Sierra road near Mammoth, started the wilderness conferences that eventually led to the Wilderness Act, etc.

I was told to delete the thread because anti-war activists can google the name and give further grief to families so this time I'll spell it backwards

killed by an improvised explosive device you know where.

I agree with Ron, this has indeed been a tough year.

Scott McAndrews - lost in the Mammoth Mountain tragedy



and most recently Vern Stiefel. I considered both to be friends.
