I am stunned. Craig was the safest partner I ever climbed with. His contributions to the climbing community in and around Fort Collins were immense. He taught so many people how to climb rock and ice, and always had enthusiasm for every aspect of the sport.

At any hour of the day you could see him in the Lorry Student Center basement at CSU organizing gear for the next outing while juggling a hardware company (Big Bros), new routing around Grey Rock or RMNP ice, authoring climbing magazine articles and guidebooks, and finishing grad school. He was a man of action and dedication. Craig gave much more back to climbing than he ever took. He was also a super solid boulderer, and had most of the Horsetooth Gill and Holloway problems dialed.

My condolences to Craig's family and fiends. He was appreciated and admired by too many too count. RIP.
