Remembering Michael Reardon, the free soloist, husband, father, and free spirit who passed away on July 13, 2007, after being swept away by a rogue wave.
We published close to thirty stories this week. Some were digitized versions of our latest print stories. Others were dusted off from Climbing's archives. Still more were original online content. Here are six stories that stood out.
Michael Reardon fell while free soloing... and lived. So Did John Bachar, James Lucas, Doug Heinrich, and Ben Heason. One of the five later died soloing.
