Several of my first gear leads were on routes established by the Conn's before they headed West. Thanks for the memories and for forging the path for the rest of us.

RIP Herb.

Thanks for the link rgold.

I hope people will take the time to read it. There's a lot of info on his and Jan's life's work in that thread that many may not be aware of.

Conn's East was my first route at Seneca; the second pitch was my first lead there. The Conn's touched a lot of lives. Rest in peace, Herb. Respect.

Condolences to his friends and family. He sounds like a pioneer who covered a lot of rock and accomplished great things in his lifetime.

I will be moving this from General to 'In Memory Of' for more views.
