Hello. My partner and I were running out of daylight during our ascent and simul-climbing the last pitch of the East Ridge. We couldn't spend anytime fiddling with the cam due to the epic/rad nature of the rap/descent. If you retrieve it, I would gladly buy you a six-pack of gourmet beer (not just that PBR shit).

LOL. This is exactly what popped into my head. Some people love 'em. Even if they are junk, which is a very arguable point to some, you still hate to leave something that cost over $100 by itself in the rock.
Oh yeah, I forgot to mention: We did this climb BEFORE the fire closures. So WHEN they are lifted, give it a shot. No point in risking that $1000 fine and 90 days in jail if you step west off Shadow Canyon North trail.
