In climbing you meet all sorts of great people, but Kris is one the nicest guys I've had the pleasure to meet and with whom to climb. He's tough, smart and interesting too, which makes hanging around him all the more enjoyable.
I've been out of town and out of touch for the last several weeks and missed this originally. Glad to have seen it (even if I'm late to the party) so I can offer a big loving dose of appreciation to Kris. Never climbed with him, but I've enjoyed our friendship immensely! Best to you!
