this incident sounds like a belay failure from what I read however, if anyone has better detail, please post it.

RIP

Kraut had been climbing with a “close friend” at the park in southwest San Benito County, according to Sheriff’s Capt. Eric Taylor. He was on a rope descending a section of the “Liberty Wall” rock face when a piece of belaying equipment held by his friend and climbing partner—who was on the ground securing the other end of Kraut’s rope—apparently malfunctioned.

Also, if he has his own obituary ready to be posted before each trip? I doubt, he would want anyone else to do it...before him. Wink

He's doing a service that can help make us safer. Can't understand why anyone would want to get snarky about that.
