Eric Anderson

December 13, 1985 - Baltimore, MD / September 6, 2014 - North Cascades, WA

On September 6, 2014, Eric Peter Anderson died in a rappelling accident while descending Le Petit Chavel after summiting the peak with his wife, Dandelion Dilluvio. It was their first wedding anniversary.

Eric was only 28 when he died, but he did more in his short life than most. After graduating with a BA in Aerospace Engineering, Eric went straight to Thailand to train in Thai Boxing! After some hesitation, he came back to the USA to begin his career as a rocket scientist. Eric was ridiculously wise beyond his years, possessed amazing intelligence and enjoyed debating with everyone he met. He also had a sense of adventure that was equally matched by his wife of one year and best friend of 12 years.

In 2011, Eric moved from Maryland to Washington with his then girlfriend, Dandelion, to begin a new job at Boeing. Immediately, they enrolled in the Basic Climbing course and followed it up with more advanced classes. Eric loved rock climbing more than anything and had a very detailed training program complete with charts to help him improve. He also had lists of every peak and crag he wanted to climb. Eric was fearless on the sharp end of the rope and loved a good hand jam or finger lock. Eric and Dandelion summited numerous peaks in the Northwest and even international peaks like Iceland’s largest mountain, Hvannadalshnúkur.

Eric was more than just an alpinist and sport climber. He as an avid snowboarder, XC skier, backpacker, boulderer and was just beginning to take up trail running. He loved to travel, but would only stay in hostels, tents and huts; never hotels. Eric and his wife ventured over American borders and trekked in Iceland, New Zealand and British Columbia. He was a purple belt in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and an inspiring coach and mentor in the sport.

Eric’s death was tragic, but he touched so many lives and experienced so many adventures. If he was going to leave this world young, this is how he would have wanted to go. He died doing what he loved and in his favorite part of the Cascade Range. His detailed list of routes, summits, places and treks will now be met by Dandelion, who plans to continue climbing along with his ashes. He will always continue to climb on in our hearts.
