On the day Sty passed, I was in Tuolumne Meadows, thinking just how good it was to be alive in this gorgeous world.
On the night before I read the post about his passing, I watched the documentary on Joe Strummer of the Clash, who died unexpectedly, like Sty, of a heart condition that had gone undectected until it caused his death.
Some time ago I listed a post for free gear. While cleaning up the garage we had come upon some old ice climbing gear of my husband's, circa 35 years ago. An old ax, some old ice screws, a warthog etc. Daryn replied first that he wanted them, and I mailed them out to him. When they arrived he sent me an email - he was so pleased to have that stuff for his collection of vintage gear. His passion for ice climbing was clear.
My deepest condolences to his family and friends.
