Herb Conn

Climbing pioneer, Seneca and Needles icon Herb Conn has passed. Yeah, I'm about two months behind the news, but I've been busy and thought surely some of the folks who seem to LIVE in here might mention it. Of course, Herb didn't climb 5.12...

But he and Jan did 220 FAs in the Needles and left a legacy of great climbs behind at Seneca Rocks before they headed west.

Thanks, Herb. Belay off...

There's been quite a lot about Herb. In addition to the rc.com thread, see also, for example,
