This Friday at 6pm, Sacramento Pipeworks will be holding a memorial for long time climber and well known climber, George "Jorge" Knott. Knott worked as a professor at the Consumnes River College but spent a significant amount of his time climbing at Lover's Leap, hiking up Shasta, and exploring the wilderness around him. Knott was caught in a riptide while swimming near Miami Beach. He was unable to escape. Friends and family remember him well.
“I met George at 11,500 ft. on Mt. Shasta. I was lucky enough to summit with him. Had a great time, he became such a good friend. He will be missed.” –Kathy Laskey
“George was one of the most inspiring people I have ever met. Full of energy and life and always helpful to others. We will always miss you.” –Tomaz Stefancic
“You were my friend of irony, George - ROTC/Berkley, Naval Officer/Deadhead, Physics Professor/Rock climber. Your kidneys were failing but you managed to leave us doing something you loved ... I will miss you George Knott, but I'm really glad you were here ...” –Debbie Gaiser
Stop by Pipeworks and take a moment to remember Jorge.
