Rob died while serving others, and putting their needs before his own. As can be seen throughout Into Thin Air, the only reason Rob went back up to the summit was for Doug. When the storm hit making it difficult for the two of them to descend, Krakauer notes that “Hall, however, wouldn’t consider going down without Hansen” (Krakauer 24). At this point, Rob’s downfall may have been inevitable, but at least he was committed to staying with his client and friend. Although Doug’s ambition could have caused Rob’s death, he never even considered the possibility of leaving him on that mountain.
