I think the fear of heights just got to him for some reason.

Some bad luck (or decisions) in the Elks this year.

I'm really surprised there is no discussion going on here but it looks like a lot of the regs are over on I think it may be that most think the forum will crash and burn too fast.

Had they already reached the summit via the regular route?
Very sad to hear this news.
