There was a climbing fatality at Owens River Gorge earlier this month. For obvious reasons (or maybe not so obvious for those who do not know me – my accident in 2010 was at Owens River Gorge), I read about this with some interest, and sadness, of course. It also led me to a very long thread regarding bolts.
One poster said this: “Grief never ends….but it changes. It’s a passage, not a place to stay. Grief is not a sign of weakness, nor a lack of faith. It is the price of love.”
