Sadly, 19-year-old climber Eric Metcalf was killed in a climbing accident a few weeks ago. His brother contacted us through Southern Appalachian Section Chair David Thoenen to let us know that he wanted to make donations to the Club through album sales in honor of his brother’s passing.
From basscausality.bandcamp.com: “This is a tribute to Eric Metcalf, my brother and best friend. Eric died in a rock climbing accident on July 8th, 2012. All of the proceeds from this short EP will go to the AAC (American Alpine Club). The AAC is an organization supporting climbing safety through the use of accident publications; these publications allow climbers to learn from others’ mistakes to prevent future accidents. The AAC is also heavily active in environmental conservation and awareness, something Eric cared deeply about.”
