Comments: I just heard the sad, sad news last night. Leo was a funny guy and a pretty decent climber. I met him in Tonsai with Timo last April and climbed with him again early May when he visited Cebu, Philippines. We were climbing the same route when he came. Never thought it would be the last I’ll see of him. We enjoyed climbing with him, drinking with him, fooling around with him, smoking weed with him, and for the short time I knew him, I can say he was a good person, leaving a lasting impression on the people he met.

This unfortunate event makes me realize how easily things can take the wrong turn, and how anything can end in a blink.

If it’s any consolation, at least the last thing he was doing was one thing he really loved—climbing. When I asked a climber friend why he doesn’t get a real job, he said, “You only live once, why not make the most of it?” I guess I can say Leo was making the most out of life for the past months.

On behalf of the climbers in Cebu who climbed with Leo, our deepest sympathies to his parents, Peter and Andrea, the rest of his family, his friends, especially Timo.

We don’t usually pray, but we’ll pray for him. That’s for sure.

Cebu, Philippines
