My heart aches for Inge's loved ones, family and friends. Having lost a husband I loved, I know loss. I am sending prayers to the heavenlies for you. If you ever want to talk about loss you can email me thru supertopo.

Fresh grief is hard to grasp. Then each day makes it more real. Talking to the people here on the SuperTopo Campfire saved my life. They were my heart and mind therapists. As you wake up each day reach out to others...and as you do, remember to live one day at a time and deal with the pain of that day day only. Hugs and Love from Lynne Leichtfuss.

From the same website that Bad Climber posted a link to, this is an interview of Inge done by her friend and occasional climbing partner, Kelsey, spotlighting female athletes.

It's an amazing interview...and some of the most profoundly beautiful photos of her were taken by Hayden.

Never having met her, I don't feel the deep sense of grief that her friends and family do, and I can only imagine how that must feel. But looking from the outside, her life, although it was short, there was a richness, a fullness, a completeness about it which really struck me. She packed an immense amount of accomplishment and sincere aspirations into a very short period of time. An old, and spiritually mature soul indeed.

While I did not know her, she sounded like an amazing woman who far superseded her athletic prowess with her kindness, empathy, and intelligence. A terrible tragedy on all sides....so sad they did not get to grow old together. My heart bleeds for both their families......

A fitting tribute to a life cut too short. I only hope my daughters can grab life as strong, regardless of the paths they choose.

There is never enough emphasis on EDUCATION and DESCISION making in avalanche awareness/classes. THE #1 tool is your BRAIN. To much talk about shovels, beacons and probes. If you are using those tools then you made a big mistake already.

Make good choices in the beginning and proper travel in snow country is the key.

If you're in Bozeman this week, there is a party in Inge's honor at Spire on the 18th.
