Mountain Climber Remembered

Sponsored by:

Yosemite, CA — An estimated 450 came out this past weekend to pay tribute to renowned mountain climber Todd Skinner.

A memorial was held at Sinks Canyon in Wyoming. Skinner was recently attempting to establish a new climbing route near Bridalveil Fall at Yosemite when he fell 500 feet to his death.

He is survived by his wife and three children. Skinner would have turned 48 years old this past Friday.
