Re: Great shot!

Thanks. This is one of my most cherished shots because the climber in the picture, Ryan, died tragically in Dec 2005 at the age of 22. He was 17 in the picture and beginning a short but spectacular climbing career. This was his first time on Longs, and he returned to do several routes on the Diamond, including D7. Shortly after getting his first pair of ice tools, he soloed Dream Weaver.
