All I know is what is reported on her Wikipedia userpage

[Gendergap] Blogger and Wikipedian Adrianne Wadewitz died
This is to inform you that one of the contributors
to this list who
spent a lot of time working on the Gendergap issue and ways to solve
it, has died in a rock-climbing accident.
How truly sad.
While I did not work with her on any gendergap-related issues, I remember
her well as a tenacious reviewer of DYK submissions, mine included. We
didn't always agree, but I never doubted her integrity and commitment to the
ideals of Wikipedia and Wikimedia.
I would note for this list her high output of featured articles, many of
them on works of women like Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, from her chosen
period of literary study, the late 18th and early 19th century, as well as
biographies of some major and minor figures of that epoch (including the
now-infamous [[Fanny Imlay]] article, one of the few nominated for deletion
(albeit strategically) on the same day it was on the main page. Nobody *but*
her could have defended that article on the talk page as well as she did
(compare with yours truly, a few grafs down)). Oh, and a nice collaboration
with another editor on [[Joseph Priestley House]].
Are there any further details on the circumstances of her death, like where
and what she was doing or attempting to do at the time? I ask only because
they will inevitably be reported in this year's "Accidents in North American
Mountaineering" along with the usual critique, and it would be useful to
know before reading it since names are not usually given and I would like to
know so I know when I'm reading about the death of an acquaintance.
