Yeah sounds like he was indeed not a climber, but I'll wager 80% of the folks that climb Kili are not either. Kili is a high altitude walk. Antero is a slighly lower altitude walk (and killed a bucket-lister a couple weeks ago, right?). Folks die on walks, sadly. Better there than watching TV.Jim Davies wrote:Barry Raven wrote:O man, you guys are so insensitive.
To be even less sensitive, the guy didn't sound like a climber at all. I mean, he trained by walking around the neighborhood and climbing one 3000'-vertical class-1 hill, then dropped dead on Kili. Sorry to hear it, but they probably have a few "bucket-listers" kick it every year on that mountain.
RIP dear sir.
