One sunny Easter morning, climbers in Eldo were surprised to find colored eggs on The Wind Tower, Whale's Tail and such. Kevin Donald was feeling festive apparently.


What year did you find em?

Found an excellent hoodie, too small for me but fit my sister.

We bootied a cat at Devil's Lake. Alerted the humane society and all that jazz, but she didn't have any tags so, my partner went home with a cat.


Did he look kinda like this?


We came across one like that a few weeks ago, healthy looking, no tags, freaked out to no end. We tried to capture him at the end of the day, but he was way faster moving around on the talus than any of us. We decided it wasn't worth breaking a leg to try to help the cat and went home. He obviously didn't belong out there.

That's nice. Do you have anything to add to the discussion, or did you just come here to violate rule 1?

How about a golf ball nestled in a moss pad about half way up a 1000' cliff and underneath an overhang (so it's unlikely to have come from the top)... I didn't find it myself but the FA party did. Lots of golfers around that area, but damn!

I've found a lot of booty while out climbing, but perhaps the least expected was the hood of a car that I found a couple hundred feet up on a ledge in Linville (also located under a large overhang). This evidence will prove to future generations the existance of the species - the "north american redneck" - that once roamed the area...

It did. We fed it some of my jerky, and she inhaled it. So we put some jerky in the bottom of a backpack, she crawled in, and we closed it up. That cat was definitely freaked out.

Crack spoon at the base of something in Little Cottonwood Canyon. We kept walking for fear of needles. Not cool.

a couple years ago I found one of Reardon's little plastic dinosaurs on Imaginary Voyage, in Joshua Tree. It was right after he passed away, if I remember correctly. Nick Barczak

A little plastic toy (army men, dinosaurs...) and a few Starburst candies at every belay on Olive Oil in Red Rock. Yes, I ate them...the candy, not the toys. csproul

This has been sitting on the ridge between Polemonium and Sill (~13,700 ft) in the Palisades for a few years.

Well, a tad strange and somewhat interesting...

My friend Marc and I were heading up to do a climb on Lliwedd in North Wales over 30 years ago, when a huge black Raven showed up circling overhead, plus it was raining, Marc declared that this was bad luck and we should descend, as soon as he said that I looked down into the mud and saw a small green book poking out; when I picked it up and wiped it off it turned out to be Edwards' original guide from the 1930's, we both declared this a good omen and kept the book and did the climb.

I swear that my first time to the Panty Wall at Red Rocks,in fall of '07', as I hiked in and reached eye level, well there behold was a small black thong sitting by the tree. Is there always some kind of fresh 'panty being intentionally left there, just for the namesake of the wall?


Chicken before the egg my man, the wall was named for the panties :)

Had just moved to Boulder and went to REI to buy the Boulder Canyon Guidebook. Turns out they were out of copies and I was bummed. Daylight was wasting so i gave up on the book and ended up going to Dream Canyon as I knew a few routes out there. Top of the first route we did i was cleaning the anchors and looked down. There, on a flat rock about 20 feet up from where my belayer stood was a brand new copy of the guidebook I was looking for.

Somewhere there's a snake running (figuratively) around naked!


On that same trip we found 2 millipedes getting some booty:

This is obviously a Krayt Dragon skeleton. The only other actual image I've seen of one (aside from artistic renderings) is from the Tatooine footage of 3PO and R2 out in the desert. John Maurer
