One week ago today, we lost a dear friend and an inspiration to the climbing and splitboarding community. On September 29th, AAI Guide Liz Daley was killed in an avalanche in Patagoina while on a photo shoot.
We announced this tragic news last Wednesday when Dunham Gooding, the American Alpine Institute's Director wrote this blog.
In the last week, we haven't stopped thinking about her. And neither have many others. Here are a few articles about Liz, her life and her tragic death:
The Adventure Journal
And here is a wonderful article she wrote for Teton Gravity Research, which we reposted on our blog.
