He was "hiking" Slipstream. I have never seen it, but isn't that like 3000ft long grade 5 ice climb or something?

Well maybe he was "hiking" it. Maybe he hiked it in his flip flops.

Glad that they found him and that his family can get the closure they deserved. RIP.

He was definitely a skilled and well respected climber around these parts. May he continue to rest in peace.
