ElCap Report 5/18/15

By Tom Evans

Yo... sketchy weather has kept the Captain empty on this day.  Many friends of Dean and Graham have come to the Valley to share their grief with those of us here.  Many stories are being exchanged and the memory of the men is thus kept alive.  We pretty much know what happened that Saturday evening but it has not been officially confirmed by the NPS.  Their investigators are working hard on the available photos of the accident and descriptions from witnesses.  The results will be published in good time.  Climbers are rather hardened to the death of friends and we are taking it stride as best we can.

So that's the way it is, on this Monday, the 18th day of May, 2015

Capt. Tom... weathering the storm.
