/ ice axe down the back of Savage Slit
It's very battered and the pick is pretty worn, but it's important to me, and its mate misses it...
Climbed the route today and didn't see it, there was a lot of spindrift blowing down the crack so it might be gone until spring.
Good luck with your rescue mission!
big magnet and a rope
same as they use to retrieve stuff that falls in at marinas
Oh dear, Brian says "punter" ;-) You can hit him on Wednesday for it...! Hope the route was nice at least!
You can walk into the savage-ness of the slit on abseil. I did it to retrieve the plastic bit off one of those DMM belay krabs. Man-up and get in there before it gets en-cased in a Winter's worth of ice.
