I would very much like to have more confidence in this product, especially given the failure of the android interface.
I PM'd it to you.

I just wanted to convey my condolences to Lenny's entire family and personal friends. I climbed North and South Maroon on separate trips earlier this summer and while beautiful, they are very technical and challenging mountains. The rock is very loose and the route finding descending North Maroon Peak can be especially difficult due to the lack of an established trail. One challenge of doing the Bells traverse is that you must descend a different route (and mountain) than the one you ascended. I'm very sad to learn of the outcome.

My condolences to Lenny's family. I am well familiar with that treacherous descent on N. Maroon Bell's. Kudos to the 14ers members who put their own desire to summit below the needs of others and descended Pyramid immediately to report the distress signals of the two who were found. We are a community.
