      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Lost Crampon on Mt. Hood

Recommended Posts

I know there's a slim chance of finding my crampon, but I lost a Grivel 12-point crampon somewhere between Hogsback and Palmer on Saturday night. I'm sure it's gone, but there's a small chance someone found it.

Hey, I found a single Grivel g12 crampon on Mount Adams last year. It's for the left foot. I brought it to Bozemen once to give it to some guy and he never picked it up, so it ended up back at my house in Seattle. If you're missing the left one and its the same model (or it'll work for you) you're welcome to have it.

 

It so happens that I'm also driving down to the Three Sisters area tomorrow, so if you live somewhere on my intended route, perhaps we could meet. If you get back to me tomorrow before say, 1 or 2 PM we can probably work something out.

major,

 

I too found someone's runaway Grivel many moons ago and would love to pass it on to somewhere productive. At this point I'll need to find out where I stashed it but if I find it and it's the correct foot, you're welcome to it (and we're local).

 

Stay tuned, will take a look this week.

Chris, I know this sounds crazy, but you might actually have my other lost pair of crampons that I lost probably 3 years ago (from what I remember). I had strapped them to my pack and was coming off an avalanchy mountain in haste. Classic 'womp-womp' sounds occured at every step. I was definitely not concerned about losing equipment. These were the less advanced grivels that fit all boots (no device to clip in on the back).

Thats a real bitch. I would be pissed.

 

Pissed that someone lost it or pissed that I found it?

 

If the latter, please stay off the high horse until you ask if I tried to return it to someone:

 

My post in the OR Cascades forum asking if anyone lost a poon (which was cross-posted in the CC.com Lost and Found forum as well)

 

Never heard a peep...

 

If the former, peace.
