I had the same idea as you and I'm happy you put up a memorial page for those who're not among us anymore.
A thread about Rahel's death
I think this photo could be suitable for this page.
Thanks Corax! I was browsing for a suitable picture last night. That looks like a good one. Will try to put it up tonight.
It's always sad to know we lose friends and members, Climbing is our lives and also what will bring some of our demise. It's great to remember those who helped make this site the best that it is and this page will be one that will be used (with sad rememberance) for decades to come.
My prayers and thoughts go out to every person (and their family)who has been lost to the mountains.
This is a great page and my hat goes off to you for your contribution.
I don't know any of these people, but I would like to; maybe you could add a little excerpt about who they were and what they did. I would really like to learn more about them. Good page.
When you click on the link to their user profile, you usually get some more background. Often they also have a link in there to their personal website. I'll try to add the names to the pics too.
Thank you very much for your action!
This is definitely a page that is sorely needed on a site such as this - as a tribute to their love for the mountains and a reminder to us all about the risks and rewards of climbing. Let us never forget our climbing comrades.
Here are some members who would be additions to your page.
Abhay Thatte died on Kings Mountain in Oregon. Link to story
Also, Patrick Wang died on Mt. Whitney's Mountaineer's Route.
Thread on it

Ouch! I'll try to add them this weekend. Will also try to make some other minor changes. Thanks for the info!
Yeah, unfortunate to have any additions to your page but I think you are doing a good thing with the "In memory of". Take care.
Thanks to all of you for the nice comments! I just felt like SP HAD to have a page like that...
Luciano, thanks for this important page. I salute the Spirit of all those listed herein.
it is startling to see so many names. This is a wonderful idea. Thanks for doing it. It certainly makes me pause to consider all these people and the sport in general.
A thoughtful addition. Thank you for making this page.
Unfortunately, yet another climber/SP'er has to be added to this page.
Mikael Forsberg - Tovalova
Founder and owner of Himalaya.nu an expedition company specializing in trekking and climbing adventures in Nepal.
Killed by a fallin serac/avalanche on Ama Dablam.
So sorry to hear about that :( I will make sure Mikael will be added to the page...
Sorry to bother you again, but please attach Mikael's profile page photo to this page.
No problem Corax! I appreciate your message! Any comments to make this page better are very welcome!
I created a related album some time ago with the No.1 photos of fallen SP members. I linked your page to mine. If you get the information that unfortunately a SP members is fallen I would please you to give me an information that I can add the No.1 photo in great honour and respect to them. Maybe you could even make also a link to my page.
Thanks for your page and your help to keep these people in our mind and hearts.
Sure! I'll try to fix that when I have some time... Thanks!!
