Thanks for posting Dommelhiemer I never would have known. I left Anchorage long ago.

Eddie gave so much to climbing up here, whether you knew him personally as many of us did, or you didn't, he gave a lot to the community here. He will be missed.

We both worked at the gymnastics club climbing wall in the mid to late 90's. Trained a lot, having been mentored by Garvey he's was truly versed in the old ways, he passed some of that knowledge down. I have always thought of him fondly for that.

Quirky (but who in this tribe isn't).

On lead he was a true Samurai!
ALS - fuck that shit - taking warriors like this. Not right.

My times meeting Eddie were at Cassel rock too. He showed me the pivot point traverse a year or two later. Alaska had a rough year, too many losses to this tight knit community.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
