DHatfield and Kman are down there now, along with some other friends from the Springs. The link made me nervous.

Condolences to the family & friends of the deceased climbers.

Made me nervous, too. I knew Doug was down there, but didn't know who he was with.

My condolences to family and friends. That is a brutal, unforgiving mountain.
