Brazilian climber Roberta Nunes died last 7/18 in a car accident in the US. Climbing since 1993 she was well known due to big-walling in Yosemite, Patagonia and Greenland.

I was fortunate to get to know her in a slide presentation she was giving in a small event in our state and I remember exchanging a very casual comment about how good it feels to climb in the conglomerate sandstone of that place.

All deaths are stupid, but it seems some are worst than others.



Details are wanting because it seems she was alone in the car.

Agreed except that it was reported that her brother was in the car as a passenger but survived the crash and is in intensive care. It was, fortunatly, a single car accident though, and not a head on 2 car thing.

Wishing him good health care and peace.
