Heartbreaking. Sorry this happened. Where was it stolen? Certainly keep an eye out on Craig's List in whatever state it is in. Climbing is hard enough- no need to risk bad karma. Hope the thief thinks twice next time. Hang in there.

Hi Andrew,

Would you mind giving us some specifics about the theft? Where and when did this happen? What was taken? I'm willing to make a donation, but not without additional info.

I'm not saying you're trying to scam the community, but the details are rather vague and, by themselves, sound pretty fishy.

Agree. And just signed up for Mountain Project today. More info needed. Which police department has the report of the theft?

check whether Jenn has renters or homeowners insurance.  Either of these should cover theft from vehicle.

No meaningful follow up on specifics.This definitely seems off.  Best of luck if true, but can't get behind supporting this approach.

IF it's less than her deductible, you shouldn't have a problem replacing it. Sounds like a fishing attempt for some cash, seeing how you didn't give us enough details on the items that anyone could actually look out for them and return them if found.

Nothing personal but this sounds like a scam post to get money.

The climbing gear was the big ticket item. The bag contained her helmet, harness, shoes, and a few other things. 

Sorry this happened to your friend, but unless the "few other things" was a double rack this shouldn't be too difficult to replace over a reasonable amount of time.

He made the same post on Supertopo. GoFundMe should be for real emergencies, not replacing a couple of hundred dollars of sports equipment. If you really like Jenn, and this really happened, then step up and replace the gear yourself.

Pretty much accomplished what I set out to do, thanks for the constructive criticism, hope to see some of you out there
