Jim, I know how you feel. I dropped my brand new $500.00 camera with a $100.00+ memory card off the Third Flatiron, in Boulder. It slid out from my camera pouch that wasn't cinched right when I was climbing. I watched it break into pieces, as it bounced down the low angle slab, and into the bushes. G : )

This is the exact spot where I dropped mine, my partner said, "do you have a spare locker?" I did, attached to the camera! *bounce....bounce....bounce....SMASH!!* The camera did not mean as much to me (it was older) as the pics on the card.

Oh yeah, about this picture...stemming to get through it is easiest, gear abounds on the left, and take your pack off!

Ouch, sorry to hear about your camera! I always have mine on with a shoulder strap, and I tape the strap ends to make sure they don't undo themselves. That strap and the carrying case are also carabinered to my harness as a backup - better luck next time!

Looking down through the chockstone on Frogland, this pitch is a lot of fun, and you once past it, you can use the chockstone as natural pro!
