    My wife and I were discussing him tonight. So few have such varied talents: Top-shelf mountaineering and top-shelf writing (Got to have your wits about you for both).  

    I've read Into Thin Air and Where Men Win Glory. Those and, I'm guessing, Into the Wild, encompass the sense of loss for accomplished, or at least worthy, people dying before their time. What poignant and fully delved exploration of that aspect of the human condition those works are. My hat is off to him.
