Rock Climbing Photo: Missing nut tool, arrow identifies bashy hat
Missing nut tool, arrow identifies bashy hat


We were climbing 'Good Heavens' in the Amphitheater in Linville Gorge, NC on 06/19/2016 when I made the genius move of dropping my nut tool (we were very much alone out there so I am confident no one got hurt). I dropped it from the first few moves in the second pitch, it fell past the first belay and kept bouncing. It is likely a lost cause given the absolute jungle of death-thorns that is the foliage at the base of the route. However! If you happen to see a metolius nut tool that is missing its 'bashy hat' (see photo) somewhere in the vicinity of Good Heavens, let us know!!

Thanks.

Ha, we did that climb yesterday too, pretty sure we were ahead of you though, hit the rock about 8am. Good luck finding the tool. Kyle Cobbler

Ah yes, you were ahead of us! Normally we are sunrise starters but the 'coffee spot' that morning was just so good that we stalled climbing until ~11. Hope you had fun! SpreadsheetDirtbags
