    Read about someone falling on Long's Peak this week on North Chimney, the standard approach to the Diamond, the 1000 ft face at 13,000 feet. Now i find out that it was Ben Hebb, who I never met but chatted with several times, off of posts on this board, shared by his friend Jason (Forum8fox). My condolences to the family and his friends. Here is the report of the fall and of this fellows upclimb of Sandthrax.

    Rocky Mountain National Park (CO) Climber Killed In 800-Foot Fall

    Early on the morning of August 27th, park dispatch received a report of a probable climbing fatality from climbing ranger Kevin Sturmer. Sturmer saw the climber fall about 800 feet from the North Chimney route on the east face of Longs Peak. Park SAR personnel reached the victim's location on the Mills Glacier; he was pronounced dead shortly thereafter via radio link by the Boulder County coroner. An investigation is underway into the cause of his death. [Submitted by Mark C. McCutcheon, Acting Chief Ranger]

    Sounds like it was off the first pitch or so on the Diamond. Doesn't matter. Very sad.
