Some news I didn't expect to read tonight, but hats off to one of the most iconic climbers in history.

Sorry if this is a repost, but this is a thread that REALLY deserves some pages. I'd love to hear some stories from you guys and your experiences with him.

This is the third post on this now, of the ones I have seen. Maybe a moderator could condense all of them...

Thanks Rgold. I figured there was no way I was the first person to see that. Ironically facebooks seems to be behind the curve on this one. Maxim ropes was the the first post I saw.

That explains it. I checked the "memorial" formum.

Thanks all.
