My best friend was John Ionescu. He just finished soloing the north face of Robson a few weeks ago and you posted his feat on your website. John died on Saturday after a 20m fall on Bonanza in the Ghost. John was a good man, and a great friend
On my wedding day John gave me a copy of Pushing the Limits. Inside the cover he wrote, "Hope to push your limits as far as you can, and have lots of fun".

John on Mt. Fay, smile in place as usual.
