I believe they found him hanging from his ropes 60' up a climb.

Silly things aside, the poor guy was climbing and all of a sudden he was subjected to a death that most of us have only seen on the movies. What's the betting that the OP's post will start a Hollywood film? If so he should get royalties.

After all he was responsible for many FA's there so it was likely that he dislodged the big rock in the first place.
