Ok, this is embarrassing, but there is a really good chance that my party and I left an insane amount of gear up around chocolate corner and/or generic crack 11-26-16 as we were leaving the crag in the dark. Missing items include but may not be limited to:
-a guide book
-tc pros size 40
-4 #2s
-2 #3s
-4 #4s
-1 #5

Obviously, we need to do a better job of keeping our thinks together. If anyone thinks they might have some info on the whereabouts of our gear, I would happily throw someone some $$$ to get it back. I can provide a more detailed list/descriptions to better verify. Feel free to call or txt me @ 303 250 8540.

Thanks!

Sam

And maybe a little less controlled substances?

I was one of Sam's climbing partners. We are also missing a two more #4s, a #2, #1, a .75, 4 quick draws and 3 alpine draws. Thank you!! Any info helps!! This gear was stuff belonging to three different people and so it is all marked differently. We can give you specifics if you have any info!!

We ended up going elsewhere, so nothing to report either way, unfortunately. Best of luck on the gear recovery.

Happens to me a lot these days. Then, you finally get your thinks together, and promptly forget where you set them down. Brains. Can't live... something, something... some...

Best of luck! OLH
