This is a cry for help to anyone who lives anywhere near Carn Gowla.
On Monday a friend and I went to do Mercury. We set up the belay rope at the top of the climb as recommended, then abbed in to do the route. My friend backed off the first pitch as we didn't have the right size cam and we finished up quicksilver as it got dark.
In our haste we forgot all about the belay rope (an orange 60m half rope). Worse, I am now back in North Wales!
I don't think it's a very popular route, so there's a chance it's still there. I've checked the lost and found forums and posted in there too.
If anyone is driving past or fancies doing a total stranger a massive favour, please get it for me! Obviously I'll pay postage and extra for a bottle of wine or something.

PS Mods I posted this in rocktalk to get more hits, sorry if it's in the wrong place.
In reply to alandovey: Andy sorry didn't see your message, until this morning. The belay is pretty easy to find just head out of the end carpark walking towards chapel porth, at the first footpath post (about 100 m) walk down over the cliff and the belay is just below the obvious rocky outcrop.
