My thoughts to his family and friends

Sad bad news. Now running on BBC most popular stories, people do love the bad news stories.

Hope everyone else involved is okay and coming to terms with the tragedy.

Probably a bit early to name on a public forum this soon after the accident..

If Hard Severe is your limit, I certainly wouldn't recommend this route. Very sad to hear about this, we all know climbing can be high stakes, but it doesn't make it any easier to hear things like this.

I knew and climbed with Kieth too. A sad loss. He was a good president of Leeds Mountaineering Club and he will be well missed by those of us are and were members. My heart goes out to his family. HS certainly was not the limit of what he could climb or of his experience of mountaineering in general.
Rest in peace my friend.

He was a cracking chap. Evertime I wandered into the Clach or the DG or Vaynol he was there. He had spoke a lot of sense to me at a time when I needed someone to talk sense into me.

Bugger must have been stalking me.

He had an easy laugh and a wicked sense of humour. You'll be much missed. Apart from by the penguins.

The rumours of penguin fiddling never really went away.

Very sad. Keith was a great guy. He was my scout leader 1999-2002(?) And put a lot of time into making our youth valuable and rewarding. Its probably due to him and a few influential others why I love the outdoors and climb now. Its brought me some of my best experiences and I'll be forever indebted to him for helping me discover the great outdoors.

RIP

I climbed with Keith in the Alps and in Scotland - a great bloke. Can't believe this - very sad. Condolences to family and friends.

Oh no! Brilliant, kind hearted and generous guy. So sad news. Thought are with his family and friends. Will be missed.

Still very very numb at the news.

Keith was one of my closest friends for well over 40 years. My formative years were spent in his company either at school, in the scouts, in the hills, on the crags, at gigs/festivals, in the pub or just simply blethering.

My life was enriched by his friendship and I will miss him terribly.

Tremendously sad news about Keith. I met him on a couple of UKC Scottish winter meets and occasionally elsewhere. A wonderful bloke, and a laugh a minute. Kept my spirits up with his constant banter on one of the wettest walks I've ever done.

RIP mate.

I was at Tremadog on tues and we saw a team on valeries rib as we were heading back to the car at around 6.30, accident must have happened just after. Very sad and sobering to read this this morning.

Just heard. What a loss. I honestly don't think I have ever met a nicer or more complete person. Lovely memories of Pembroke when the Land Rover's trailer unhitched on an 'A' road, or the trouble we got in eating really crumbly baguettes in the back of someone else's very clean car... and slide shows at the Adelphi with tall tales of expedition cooks being attacked with knives and other everyday mountaineering episodes... What a loss. C
