I suspect the admin was having a hard time keeping up with the number of inappropriate, or at least insensitive, comments in that thread so just deleted it.

Climbers, or at least climbers on the interwebz, can be real d!cks sometimes - and I say this being a climber AND a real d!ck sometimes. ;)

My thoughts and prayers go out to the family. I was passing by shortly after this had happened and was helping one of the Sherrifs on scene understand the area a little.

PS... Lets not ruin this thread, the other one was just plain sad. SHOW SOME RESPECT!!
