I work in the medical field and from time to time I speak with people who do not see death as a sad event, I understand the perspective. Although this is not my belief I can respect the view point.
I don’t think Tbenner is trying to be disrespectful.

TROLL... every person's death is a sad thing, even yours. Also, how is someone's death disappointing but not sad. Obviously no logic or brain in that thinking.

RIP to a fellow Stanford alumna.

My daughetr is a paramedic, so we hear of some pretty bad situations..........and death. I think that when someone dies from suffering after years of cancer or....?? Then Yea, not as tragic or sad as Tbenner stated. Because it's expected, or at least you know that it's going to happen BUT he didn't say thst. This death is tragic, rgardless of the risks that were taken. You don't expect this regardless of the risks you take. I haven't climbed these rocks. But I really don't think the climbers think everytime they go out, this might be my last.

I hope that all friends and family kind find peace.

Don't matter who you are and how good of climber one is, the fact remains that in some cases it could be, all it takes is one mistake, maybe the only mistake that one ever makes, and it's over.

This sad incident is just another awaking reminder to all of us that this game we play will kill you if you lapse in any form.

My condolences to the family and friends.


Oh yeah, like I always say folks, she could not have moved on into the next dimension in any better form. Most assuredly doing what she loved doing most..... climbing. A true victory for her and anyone else that dies while doing what they love the most in life.

Chris had been living in Beijing for the past year or so. We met and climbed together in Yangshuo a few years ago; she became a regular member of the ex-pat climbing scene in Beijing. She was a very switched on climber and a wonderful person to talk with about life, family, career, climbing and just trying to figuring it all out. She will be missed by many friends here!

Condolences to the family.
