Very sad. My thoughts and prayers go out to his wife, family, and friends.

Even the most experienced people can have one little slip or one moment of inattention.

Sad, but it sounds like he knew the risks and chose to go ahead anyway. I feel more sorry for the people he left behind.

This kinda goes with my thought that regardless of how experienced one is there is always that one unexpected situation that makes us a complete newb.

Always learning ya know... 

I do find this very sad to say the least. My hope is that others will take something positive from this tragedy.

This guy was a very experienced and well known/liked climber in the area. 

The mountain was busy that day b/c of a perfect weather window.
