Here comes the
'He deserved it because he was doing something dangerous vs. you aren't living your life because you're not climbing mountains' debate.
Either way, it's a tragedy.:(

Speaking for the entire climbing community I want to say our hearts go out to the family. You will be kept in the prayers of many as your journeys lead you past this tragic accident.

Another terrible tragedy. More discussion at Cascade Climbers and at http://www.adn.com/front/story/8898484p-87983... .

Their choice to traverse the Messner Couloir was curious. Human error? Did this, as the death on Humboldt, need to happen?

My heart goes out to the family and friends of the deceased, but somewhere, somehow we need to seriously analyze these situations and present the results, otherwise needless deaths will continue to occur.

Flame on.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of the climbers. A tragedy, of course, for such young people to die. But I, too, am of the mind of the Massey family, who released a statement late Thursday saying, "Brian passed away doing what he loved. God grant that we all do likewise."

Yes, Flame on.

Condolences to the family. Prayers and safe climbing to Denver teacher Mike Haugen as he will soon attempt to reach the top of the world: Mt Everest. I suspect he'll attempt it soon..he's at Camp 3 right now.

I went to Regis also and knew Brian a little bit. I am sorry to hear of this horrific news, but like his dad said he died doing something he loved. If we can all be so lucky and go when we are doing something we love. My prayers and thoughts are with all that are affected by this horrible situation.

I grew up with Brian and his family, living just two doors down from him. Our families were great friends for years. He was a wonderful friend to me and we will all miss him.

My condolences to his family and if there is anything that we can do...

I don't understand why they felt the need to take chances like that. I get that it's a rush, but, come on.... very sad
