I was talking to sdkeil last night about Jim; we met him on the North Face of Longs in 2013 in passing. He said he had about 370 summits of Longs at that point. I'm glad he hit the 400+ mark and it's an honor to have met him. Rest in peace, Jim.
still unclear why all the water isn’t sparkling.

May Jim's spirit rest in peace forever, and may his memory always be a blessing.

Agreed, a beautifully written tribute, great to learn more about Jim. Prompted by that next-to-last photo, I now realize that the last time I saw him was when he and Lisa were descending the Trough as I was going up alone one February. I wish I had made the connection then, it would have been good to thank him again. Great guy, RIP.

I met him with Shawn and Caroline on Longs in January of 2013 and he was such a nice and humble guy. More than 1000 rescues! #LEGEND Great write up.
