It was a rapelling accident at the end of the day. Experienced climber made a mistake and went 80 feet to the ground. A good friend who is a vastly experienced climber was right there and did everything he could to save this unfortunate sole to no avail. Gravity never sleeps. RIP lots of sadness and trauma for all.
