My condolences.
Here is what seems to be a bit more accurate report of the rescue from the SAR website:

So sad to hear this. Thank you for the link to the SAR report--must have been a tough one on the responders, too, I imagine.

Condolences to her family and friends and community.

I have friends in Vegas right now, so hopefully they will release the name of the person.

Her name was Heather Gray. she was from vancuver canada she was a beautiful young woman and a very strong climber.it was a tragic accident that could have happened to any climber. this past week heather was climbing solar slab when a hold broke. Her gear did not fail or get rip out.simply a hold broke which lead to a fall that was tragiclly fatal. RIP Heather. I ask out of respect for family and friends that all post remain positive.

Don't stand by my grave and weep,for I am not there,I do not sleep
I am a thousand winds that blow,I'm the diamonds glint on snow,I'm the sunlight on the ripened grain,I'm the gentle autumns rain,don't stan by my grave and cry, I am not there,I did not die.

@RedRockRat coming into the loop on Friday the ranger saw our gear and told us to be careful because they had a fatality. Thats how I heard.

Again best wishes to family and friends.
