Any update on R. J. Secor?

Post by Phil R » Fri Aug 03, 2007 6:00 pm

It has been over two years since R. J. Secor had his accident and head injury near Mt. Baldy. I haven't heard anything in two years. Anyone have an update?

Saw him at the Peter Croft slide show at Grifith Park several months back. He was walking, talking, looked fine.

Dan Richter of the Sierra Club Advanced Mountaineering Program has posted on Facebook that RJ died on Oct. 26.

RIP. He had a real passion for the Sierra and his guidebooks are a legacy that will endure for generations.

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.
