Very sad...

Earlier this summer I started talking with a fellow at the base of a popluar Seneca route. He was with folks from the Gendarme, so at first I assumed he was a client. We started chatting and I realized he was the instructor. We proceeded to have a very pleasant conversation and he offered some suggestions relevant to an upcoming trip out west we were planning. As we were heading out we commented on what an incredibly friendly and easy going guy he was. Later that evening I found out he was THAT Craig Luebben and had in fact authored some of the books on my climbing bookshelf!

Godspeed Sir - you made an impression in our relatively insignificant intersection. That speaks volumes to what kind of person you must have been...

Our deepest condolences to family and friends.


PS for those that don't recognize the name, amongst other notable achievments, he invented Big Bro's...
