Steve Gladbach Photo Memorial

Postby Gueza » Tue Jun 25, 2013 10:16 pm

Post your favorite photos of or with Steve and a few words if you want.

I'm sure everyone, especially Steve's family, would love to see more photos of our good friend and climbing legend along with the impact he had on so many people.

I'll start with a few of my favorites

Prayer flags on Capitol peak. No way I could have done it without Steve
Image

Steve was a fine trail breaker and gladly setup a fixed line for us humans to use across the Kit Carson Avenue
Image

Two of Steve's many essentials. His orange hat and a smile
Image

Duct tape. Or Gaiters according to Steve
Image

He hauled fried chicken up for all of us on the summit

Look at every setback, failure, and time you feel down in your life as a temporary, fixable condition. That is how you never give up and keep moving onwards.

Dear Steve,

I sure had a big cry on the summit of Vestal Peak as I remembered you. Thanks for all the help to climb the Centennials.

Sam, Sean & I held our pictures of you from your final climb.

I miss you buddy.

So tonight I was looking at some old emails to find beta on a route and I came across a conversation I had with Steve several years ago. He was such a wealth of knowledge and I wish I could pick his brain right now! I never had the chance to climb with him directly but his advice was with me on many climbs.

Thank you Steve!
