Pete Absolon was killed in a climbing accident this weekend in the Wind River Range.
Pete was the new director at NOLS Rocky Mountain. He is survived by his wife, Molly, and 7-year old daughter, Avery.
Pete was climbing a new route in the Leg Lake region of the winds, not far out of Lander, when a hiker dislodged (or threw, the details are sketchy and the incident is being investigated by the county Sheriff) a rock down from the ridge, which struck and killed Pete. He was wearing a helmet.
