Susan is the first El Capitan fatality and Yosemite's third BASE fatality overall.
She held a head high attitude for too long, lost altitude awareness, and backed into the wall in her 15th second of freefall.
This jump began the process of insisting people who begin BASE jumping have at least 150 previous parachutes jumps.
There is also a side issue involving people without much experience being handed BASE jumps beyond their abilities.
Load organizer Keith Jones is arrested by the Park Service (after staying behind to lead recovery efforts) and charged with manslaughter. The charges are later reduced to aerial delivery.
