/ gear left in snow shelter near the top of devil's kitchen
At the risk of sounding a complete muppet - I inadvertently left some rock gear (2 BD camalots, hexes and some quickdraws) burried in a snow shelter made above the Devil's Kitchen on Dec 29th. The shelter is about 50-100m north of the devils kitchen descent.
If you have found it I'd gladly pay a reward for it.
Thanks in advance
Assuming your shelter was a kind of snow block structure your kit wasn't there by 4.30pm on December 30th when we were there having a brew - unless you really did bury it out of sight. Sorry not to bring better news. That said, we did appreciate the use of your shelter, though the location did confuse us a bit as we tried to find the Kitchen descent after dark in a blizzard! Hope someone returns your gear.
Has anyone left any climbing partners in the snow I could go and retrieve?
Got enough gear, just need more people to go out with :-)
I think my kit got buried hence it being left.
We were having a nightmare trying to find the descent too.
So you were probably sat on top of it.
I was talking to one of my mates at the weekend about this and he thought there may have been signs of something still buried in there so you never know your luck! Anyway this reply will have bumped your post so someone else might see it!
