Does anyone happen to know if he was attempting the route discussed in the issue, Gorillas in the Mist, when the accident occurred? The article said he was trying to become only the second ever to climb it successfully, but that it is a notoriously risky and difficult route.
Yes, he's a very nice person. He was at Chapel Pond on an easy route by comparison. There's a couple details here: http://www.adirondackdailyenterprise...form=hootsuite
