Had an incident on Goofers slab and had to leave some gear behind in order to make a trip to the ER (the doc has assured me I will live - just a knee sprain). My partners in their hurry to get down, left 2 BD screws and slings/screamers in the ice. We also somehow dropped a Nomic on the way down to the parking lot.

If anybody finds any of our gear, we sure would be very grateful to get it back.

I already left messages at IME and/or EMS. My partner plans on posting something on NEICE.

Thanks. Be careful out there.

This was on Tuesday and yes I got word that the gear is now at IME. Thank you to whoever turned it in.

Tuesday!! Well that must have been exciting.. Plan A Tuesday was Repentance but the crux was out. Goofers looked out too. Way to make it happen!

For future, this is also a great place for more local New England incidents. someone found your gear and was looking for the owner.

Yeah we talked to some guys on the trail on the way in and they said repentance was out. Not too surprising given the warm temps.

Good to hear no one fell.

We belay way down at the tree. A 60 meter just makes it to the top.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
