Adirondack Climbing Legend Dies
The Rollie Master, Joe Szot
Joe Szot, 51, died of a heart attack while rock climbing in the Shawangunks Mountains of NY, March 14, 2012
Joe was climbing a route and started feeling poorly. He asked to be lowered. Once on the ground he stopped breathing. His partner called 911 and preformed CPR till help arrived. They could not save him.
Joe Szot was bigger than life and a fixture in the Adirondack climbing community. He will be missed by many and Keene Valley will never be the same. Our best to his family, friends and all that knew him. Please respect their privacy during this difficult time.
More details as they become available.
