In Memory of Cyrill Rüegger

 
Matterhorn 4478m
Matterhorn Summit. July 28,2007
Cyrill Rüegger, who went by the handles Cyrill and Digitalis on SP, died on June 13, 2009 in an avalanche on the summit ridge of Piz Palü together with his wife Tanja and a mutual friend. They were swept down by the avalanche into a couloir beneath the east summit and died instantly. Their bodies were retrieved from the Palü Glacier by helicopter a following day.

Cyrill joined SP in 2006 and was one of the most prolific contributors on the site by creating and maintaining 70 mountain and 5 range pages. However, Cyrill's real internet home was www.hikr.org where he contributed 585 mountain profiles and reports. Cyrill also posted on www.bergsteigen.at and other climbing sites, often under his real name but also under the pseudonym Digitalis. He was a botanist by profession and contributed his knowledge about medical plants to different websites. Cyrill will be greatly missed by all.
