Thanks for remembering Bob. He was the most influential member of the Mt Whitney climbing community. When he spoke or wrote, everyone listened. His passing is truly a loss.
When he climbed Whitney and signed in the book, he would put "xxx" after his name, indicating that his number of times on the summit was in the three figures. He was also a member of the CLMRG, the China Lake Mountain Rescue Group, and had participated in dozens of rescues and recoveries in the southern Sierra.
"Some Guy" was the best.
Edit: "Some Guy" was how he identified himself in the hike pictures he often posted.
