Climbing tragedy in Red River Gorge, KY Nov.5th, 2008

Yesterday (Nov. 5th, 2008) the climbing community found out
that we lost two of our comrades.
You two will be missed!

Ben Strohmeier & Laura Fletcher, both 18yrs of age,
were found dead at Emerald City Tuesday evening.

My heart goes out to their families.

Climbers never die, they just move on to the next pitch!

Details from the Lexington Herald-Leader about the accident
