I am sad to read today that someone died at Rumney last week.

Are there any more details?

My condolences to the family.

I wonder whether he fell while bouldering.

out of consideration for the friends and family, perhaps it would be a good idea to restrain from speculating about whether or not this was an accident until confirmed information is made public.

condolences to his friends and family.

I saw nothing of the sort stated there. It said the cause of death was being investigated. Let's keep it to condolences to his family and friends until official word comes down.

I wish the best for the family in making it through this extremely trying time.

The loss of Tom is tragic, I personally did not know him but do know a few of his friends, they are deeply saddened by his loss. I know as a climber seeing the loss of a fellow climber, at my local climbing area, is a feeling I hope nobody ever has to experience.

My deepest sympathies go out to his family and friends.

Folks, no matter the cause of death lets just pay respect to his family, friends and the life he lived. Do that for him and his family.

No sure exactly where it happened but I believe it was in the west end of Blackjack Boulders, because of where they carried him out. It was truly tragic. matthewWallace
