Thank you for these postings. I climbed my 1st 14er, Humboldt, just after TalusMonkeyâ€™s night assent. My friend, RockMother, and I used his trip reports as guides. We followed his adventures like a kid who has a supper hero. I hope to meet you on the trail one day. I will node politely and keep on my way. God bless.

My hope for you is that with time, your heart will heal, and the memories of David will once again make you smile and leave you with feelings of happiness. The pain and sadness will ease over time, but it will take time. You're such a positive and strong person - those traits will prevail.
Try your best to enjoy that upcoming trip to Hawaii - you'll make David proud by soloing that highpoint.
Stay strong and know that we all care, more than you know.

I feel an emptiness that I have never felt before. I miss my friend.
I know this thread hasn't been up for awhile and I'm sorry to bring it back. But, Steven told me about everything that has happened and I can't tell you how sorry I am to hear about all of this. I can't even imagine how you feel; how your heart feels. This tribute is the most beautiful and touching piece I think I've ever read; it made me cry. If there's ANYTHING I can do for you, don't hesitate to call. I'm so sorry.

Casey and I have just returned home from Colorado, we are from Wisconsin and climbed Mt. Elbert, we didn't understand then what TM meant, as we saw a sign and heard some things of "Talus Monkey" it wasn't until we came back on to 14ers.com that we understood what TM meant...your story brought us both to tears, although we don't know you we have been so touched with your loss.
At 22 you have experienced more than most do in a lifetime, you both had such a special relationship and that is something I know will carry you for a lifetime!!! Your Faith on God is something you can count on and It will provide you the Hope you need when you become overwhelmed.
You are in our thoughts and prayers,

We are returning next summer to celebrate our 25th anniversary and planned on climbing Mt. Humboldt, we will say a prayer at the top with you and David in mind!
take care of yourself, a great song by Vince Gill "rest high on that mountain" is incredible
