No details yet on cause of death. One of his films was a big part in inspiring me to climb.

Wow, he wasn't that old.  Brilliant climber who soloed 5.11 barefoot in the Verdon.  An inspiration to me as a barefoot climber.

As The Who said: Just gotta get used to it, we all get it on the end...

He was a huge inspiration to me as well Ward. I remember him at Snowbird and was just so amazed at his movement and strength. What a sad loss for us all.

I still have the tape of that, not into plastic at all but that was plain brilliant climbing even to a trad.  One of the most influential climbers of the late 20 th century.

sneoh:
Really sad news.
He was so smooth, elegant, and makes it all look so easy when it is not.
Ward, I think he is only a year older than us.  Sobering thought.  Sigh.
