Another rappel accident? We must be so careful throughout the process. My condolences to all who know and loved Dennis.

Very enjoyable and touching read. My two daughters (and three sons, for that matter) can't understand the lure of the rocks.

I am lucky to have my 5, but you are blessed to be able to share your passion for climbing with your daughter.

Phil Bostwick, some day I will meet you on the roof of our old apartment building. We will watch the sunset and speak knowingly of the life ahead of us.

It has been a good life for me, and I thank you for your part in it. It has challenged and sustained me.
