Looks like it's worth a bit of publicity. Nice shot, too.

I wondered too. That would be a good reason to stay quiet.

All of these deaths are quite tragic and affect many of their loved ones.  We also lost the legendary Dean Potter at Taft Point, but he was taking a calculated risk.  His death saddened many who live in Yosemite. The is something powerful about places like this that attracts people from all walks of life.

Alan,  From what I understand one of them hit the wall before clearing the notch.  It really is a beautiful sight when everything goes right. 

Oh and they found the couple:

Yeah and they follow closely, usually with the second flyer filming. The second guy has to rely on the first guy to get the line right. The thought was that when Dean hit the wall Graham didn't have time to change his trajectory and just followed him into it.
Sad, but these guys knew what was at stake.
