4 out of 5 stars Gear Left in Cave Crack 6/26/11

We were teaching two new trad climbers on Cave Crack on 6/26/11 and in the process my brand new #3 camalot got left in the crack above the cave, along with the neutrino that was on it and a single length runner with two astro carabiners. If anyone retrieves this piece and is kind enough to return it to me, I will be happy to offer a reward and hold you in the highest esteem. (The piece is not fixed or anything, it was just apparently unclipped but left in its placement)

4 out of 5 stars Cave Crack

Crack in a "cave" that narrows as you go up. Cool belay station, out of the sun.
