RIP Kim Schmitz

Most have probably heard, but we lost a NW legend last week. Having done the Split Pillar, that picture of him on it in winter always blew my mind. And that was peanuts compared to what he did in the Karakoram and Yosemite. He had a tough time later in life, but was still getting after it.

wise sir do not grieve

it is always better to avenge dear ones

than to indulge in mourning

for every one of us living in this world

means waiting for our end

let he who can achieve glory before death

when a warrior is gone

that will be his best and only bulwark
