Condolences to friends and family of Ethan Gillett. Sounds like he rapped off the end of a fixed line on the Column.

He was a good man, an amazing person, devoted friend and outstanding climber. His community here in Boulder is in mourning after receiving the tragic news the morning after his passing. We are all in shock from this incident. His climbing partner who is also a dear friend to our community is safe, healing with family and we hope to see him back here in Boulder soon to give him somme love. Your kind words and thoughts are appreciated by all. Truly a terrible loss to the collective climbing community. He is and will be greatly missed.
