Coffee after freezing our asses off near James Peak.

We will be having a Celebration of Life in memory of Jim DiNapoli on Saturday, May 3rd. We will have a gathering in the Garden of the Gods at 3:00pm. Park in the north lot and we will gather in the small circle area about half way down the path (past the rest rooms) on the left. The Gardens were his favorite place to be so it seems only fitting to start there.

Rock Climbers of Colorado Springs will be out climbing that day in his memory as well.

Jim passed away about a month ago from pancreatic cancer. If you climbed in the Garden, you have probably met him once or twice. He was a real character. So come out and share some stories or listen to a few.

This is a novel auto blocking belay device.  I think it works quite well, depending on rope thickness and sheath quality, it belays very smooth.  Great to lower with.  You gotta love over engineering.  $3 at a gear swap!

Noticed he has and account here:

He was very active on 14ers.com, too.

Climbing at the Belvedere crag near Nago with a great view of the northern end of Lake Garda and the town of Torbole sul Garda below. June 2013.

I'm saddened and sorry to hear this. I never met Jim in person but communicated via the internet every now and then. He seemed like a passionate and wild character. RIP.
