Ed was an incredible climber, one of the pioneers of buildering;having made numerous gound up, free attempts on the TransAmerica building in SF. A very vocal voice on the ethics of climbing, also a poet at heart: he epitomised the climbing spirit of the 70s and 80s. May he rest in peace.
Condolences to all Ed's loved ones. Grateful for Ed living amongst us for as long as he could. He was a dedicated environmental activist and a great climber, a thoughtful and engaging conversationalist, a poet in mind, body and soul.
