My name is Mark Savageau- I am the older brother of Pat Savageau (deceased in 2000- fell @ "Thin Ice" @ Needles, CA).
I'm looking for the GPS coordinates or some other way to find the location of the climb where he died. It has been a long time, and I have decided that I want to go to the site to pay my respects and see it for myself.

If anyone can help me, I would appreciate it- I can be reached at: Msavageau@gmail.com

I know he was climbing with Dan DeLange, but he has never contacted our family to my knowledge, but I know he climbed with a lot of people, so I'm hoping that someone here can help me find the location- I'm on Google Earth, and it is not helping much with what little info I can find.

Regards,

Mark E. Savageau

I'm dumbstruck that rockclimbing.com was actually useful. Especially with the very first reply!

Shocked

This thread can be closed- I've had a tremendous number of helpful replies, and to correct an earlier statement, Pat's climbing partner ("Dan Delange") DID reach out to my mother, I was not aware of that fact until today.

Thanks to everyone who offered positive comments and memories.

Regards,

Mark "El Gato" Savageau
