maybe we're all damaged goods, but is there any more that can be done? I have never found a mountain worth dying for in any sport. The warnings are there no one is above the laws of nature.

To calloused rescuer and Phil A. The next time you drive your car, motorcycle, snowmobile, or even pedal bike, remember "the laws of nature" yourself. This kid was a great kid, this was a tradegy. Someday it may be you that is someday in need of rescue, hopefully your rescue team will want to help you, not criticize you.
Our deepest sympathy for the family.
