As you may have heard, Todd Skinner was killed on Oct. 23, 2006 while descending fixed ropes on Leaning Tower in Yosemite. While many of us in Oklahoma may have never met or climbed with Todd we knew him throughs videos, photos, stories and slideshows. He was an inspiring climber to watch. Always pushing the boundaries of climbing while remaining true to himself and the sport.
As a show of respect to him and his family and gratitude for being the climber he was, we’ve decided to combine our efforts as Oklahoma climbers in donating to Todd’s Memorial Fund.
Patrick Huntley has been generous enough to collect the money and send it to Todd’s family. If you would like to donate (any amount is appreciated) please send your checks to him at:
10632 S. Memorial Box #13
Tulsa Ok. 74133
OR you can donate through PayPal by sending your donation to Rockman911[at]cox[dot]net. Feel free to include a note (either in mailing your check or submitting paypal). All messages and money will be sent on behalf of Oklahoma climbers to Todd’s family. Donation period extended to 11/17.
