Some friends of mine had their entire pack of gear stolen around November 7th. It was last seen in a Gregory pack on the east face of Trachcan Rock at the base of Butterfly Crack. Anyone local know of any suspicious activities?

I live here. Could you be more specific. Did they leave it behind? Were they up on top setting up an anchor and someone walked away with it???

I can check with the West Entrance and the park service to see if it was turned in. What color etc.

‎26 cams, 21 quickdraws, 6 slings, 30+ carabiners, 2 pr shoes, 1 helmet camera w accessories, 1 backpack, 4 water bottles
All gear was marked with yellow electrical tape. This is all I was told. They have filed a report with police and are now hanging in the area waiting to see what will happen. I am just trying to get the word out to any locals. I really cannot understand why another climber would do such a thing.
