While the industry was in Anaheim for Winter Market, respected ice climber Rod Willard was killed in Colorado. He was belaying another climber when a huge (some 400 pounds, according to reports) block of ice was loosened by unseasonably warm weather and fell directly on Willard. Rod and his wife Kerry Evens had been married for only four months. A fund named in his honor is being formed. Contact Rocky Henderson at email@example.com for more information.
