Lost snowshoes - $100 reward

Post by CaptainSuburbia » Wed Jan 06, 2021 10:49 am

I left them at 14,000 feet while doing Harvard from Frenchman Creek side. If anyone goes up there I'll pay you to bring them down. There's a super nice trench to treeline so could be an easy snowflake, albeit long. If you're going to climb this weekend, why not get paid? Otherwise, maybe I'll go up there next week for them and grab 13,374. Anyways, message me if you're going and I'll give a more precise location. Thanks!

Curious as to how or why you left them?

Edit: Just pretend you're going for LB again and a return should be no problem.

It was dumb. I normally don't like stashing them because of this. I got to the upper ridge at 14k. It was super windy and I decided I didn't want them on my back for the spicy sections with that wind, so I left them. On the descent I stuck mostly to the standard Columbia-Harvard traverse route which popped me out a bit below snowshoes. Then I just simply spaced it until almost down in the basin ](*,)

Actually, it was all TallGrass - he’s the one who found them on the ascent (in the dark, no less) and schlepped them down on the descent (I offered to take at least one, but I didn’t feel compelled to press the issue when he insisted). I just provided moral support. :)
