Awesome thought, John.  We lost a legend.

I called George but Ingalls had called him 1 hour earlier. Sad day for the climbing community. He was both bold in climbing and in life.

Just did Standing Rock a few days before he passed. Wild place, much respect on doing the FA over 50 years ago.
Get out and do a Kor route!
