Got a thread going in the 14ers.com Facebook group about Roger Linfield.
One of the members posted this link with Roger's impressive U.S. climbing
stats, and also noted that Roger is the person who placed the climbing
registers on a number of the state's 13ers. Some also noted his generosity
in putting together and donating a significant amount toward the bill for
trips to access the peaks on Cielo Vista ranch. I don't think I ever met
him, but it sure sounds like I missed out onknowing someone special.

>> My heart is heavy at the passing of Roger, one of my best friends. He was
>> simply one of the most remarkable people I ever met. We first met at my
>> house in Las Animas, CO in January of 2003, where I offered to take him see
>> an Eastern Towhee coming to seed in a remote Bent County Canyon. He saw a
>> dog-eared copy of Garratt and Martin's *Colorado Thirteeners *guide,
>> leafed through it, and immediately offered to hike up the three hardest
>> peaks I had remaining on my quest to finish climbing the Centennial
>> (highest hundred) peaks in Colorado. The next summer, we climbed Dallas,
>> Teakettle and Jagged Mountains.
>> I'm attaching a few pictures of Roger in his element, in order to show
>> people another side to this giving, humble, and accomplished man. I last
>> saw Roger in late January at an annual Climber's Gathering in Golden. One
>> week later, he was diagnosed with cancer. Throughout his ordeal, he
>> constantly updated me on his status, talked with me, and made plans for his
>> return to climbing when he recovered.
>> Rest in peace, friend.

All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost; the
old that is strong does not wither, deep roots are not reached by the frost.
