I lost a set of Wild Country on a wire-gate biner at the bottom of The Brat, on friday 6/25.  My friend and I were toproping and started scrambling around the upper cliff area above the toprope anchor, leaving some stuff at the bottom.

According to a girl climbing next to us, some people came by, saw the stoppers, and asked whose they were.   The girl did not know whose they were, and the people picked up the stoppers and walked towards the bridge (away from the uberfall).

The black one by Dick Williams? probably accidently picked up by another party at the base of Easy O on Monday June 7th. Had some comments on routes climbed, sad to lose my own climbing history. If anyone found it you can reply to holmes.ali@ gmail. com. Thanks.

I recently lost a chalk bag some where in the vicinity of easy keyhole (as i remember that being the last climb i was on when i last saw it).  May have also been lost somewhere in the trapps parking lot as well. This was about 2 weeks ago.  The design is a bunch of road signs on the face–stop sign, yield sign, etc-Pretty colorful, hard to miss.

Chalk bag was one of a kind purchased from Miguel’s, Kentucky–it means a lot.  Please let me know if you find/have found it.

Come to the Eastern premiere of Pat Ament’s new film,”THE DISCIPLES OF GILL”!

Legendary climber Pat Ament is coming to the NY/NJ area at the end of April/beginning of May.  Pat’s new film, “The Disciples of Gill,” is getting rave reviews. The film features John Gill – the greatest boulderer of all time.
