So I guess it's not all that uncommon to find undies at a crag. Butt usually it's more of the poop stained variety and not a perfectly good brassiere . We found this pair (haha) at Shelf the other weekend........a short time after spring break, go figure. To be clear, we did NOT booty this booty, only because it was just not a good fit for any of us. Although, one of us (NICK) tried really hard to make it work, but I won't name names. Damn those 46" lats :).
Anywho, it made me wonder how many of you have found bizarre or unusual things while out climbing and what they were?

Got Milk? How about forearm pump? Tony leads "Alan Nelson's Bulging Belly" (5.10, X) on the Lost and Found Flatiron. Belayer is Mark Ruocco. Photo by Bill Wright, 10/06.

The funny thing is, I believe I know who the culprits were, and they were there on Easter Weekend! 2/3 of them are regulars here so let's see if they respond.

As for strange booty found while climbing... A single shoe. I picked it up, showed it to my partner and said: "Check it out, Booty!"

I also plucked a large Forest Titon and a large SMC camlock (fixed) out of Progression (lumpy ridge) in the mid 1990's.

I swear that my first time to the Panty Wall at Red Rocks,in fall of '07', as I hiked in and reached eye level, well there behold was a small black thong sitting by the tree. Is there always some kind of fresh 'panty being intentionally left there, just for the namesake of the wall?

Weirdest thing I ever found was a full TR anchor comprised of 5 new atache lockers, a stopper, and a yellow TCU, and a piece of static rope.

It was weird because the site has a easy (read flat, marked trail) walk around and the cam and stopper were very marginally placed. No one was there. I was sure I was going to find bodies as I looked over the edge due to the lack of a rope hanging and questionable anchor. We climbed there for hours, took the gear when we left, left a note where we found the stuff and climbing gym. Never heard from anyone.

I guess someone just forgot, but the whole situation was weird.

Was climbing in Red Rocks just right of Solar Slab Gully when 2 brits bailed mid-way through the first pitch of S.S. Gully 5.4 with only 20 more ft of easy climbing to the first rap bolts. Instead they left 3 lockers, a long sling, a wild country friend, and a nice big hex. Nice reward for finishing a long day of climbing.

It's not really weird but I did find an one of the early style friends at the top of an 8 out in J-Tree. It was sitting there placed well at the top of the route, assuming it was part of an anchor and was simply left.

Function over fashion.  My newest pair of climbing shoes.

I found a lover once. Oh wait. . .you said interesting. That he was NOT!!!!!

Actually I have found 2 ropes and a number 4 cam in about 8 years. Of course there have been a bunch of nuts and biners too. Oh yah and a headlamp at Indian Creek. Oh and some trail running shoes at shelf. Whoa and a .75 in Moab a long time ago. I'm the bootie queen! I've tried to find the owners off all of my booty. I was successful with a helmet and some climbing shoes. I guess I found those too. Wow. And a hat at Shelf.

I find a lot of booty but unfortunately I also attract terrible weather. So climb with me if you want schwag and thunder.

My navigator keeps me from getting lost

i climbed Melvin's Wheel at Lumpy on Sunday. At the final "rap station", i found an oval 'biner. The strange thing is that it was clipped to the two ends of a dog leash that had been wrapped around a chock-stone.

it was made of heavy nylon webbing and i'm sure it would've held body weight before it decayed in the sun. but, still, who carries a dog leash with them as climbing gear?

Tony, nice! shoe...booty took me a sec but hahahahahahahahahahha. What's a Forest Titon? Did I go to school with him?

Pat, I like you, but your, Mom's booty is SO, big, Jim Ebert would probably, get, lost in there,... never to be heard of again,, (that, would be, tragic,,,,,word).

Mark, nope this particular piece climbing equipment with it's peep guardians was seen at left Bank. More lingering lingerie?

JML, Fishing lures........interesting. Were you around water or in the desert somewhere :)?

Legs, ummmmm, what did my hat look like? I'd really like that back.

Great responses, some of you have scored some great stuff! It's fun to hear b/c sounds like in the spirit of Karma, or whatever goodness you want to call it, you have all tried to get stuff back when it looked like a case of accident, emergency, weather etc. Nice.

As for booty...I have found my share of biners/stoppers/cams, and even once found a complete anchor of three Camalots, biners, and cord still attached...but one of the most memorable was a Starburst candy and a plastic toy army-man or dinosaur left at each belay of a route in Red Rocks. Of course I ate the candy while belaying.

I once found a loaded pipe and a lighter inside a hueco pocket about 2/3 up a sport route. It was right before the crux so I found a stance, took a quick toke, put it back in the pocket and climbed on!

You Know Jim Ebert would have top roped out of that ass and added another 10 pages to his resume.

Doing some climbing at Wishon Reservoir in CA and reached for a handhold and grabbed a Super Duper instead. Water level was down about 150' making for some very nice clean climbing.

LOLOLOLOLOLOL NO WAY!!!!!! Jim Ebert made his way into this thread!


The best thing I ever found was 4 very shiny, very new, very sharp DMM rev screws used as rap anchors it looked like. As I was setting the anchor up at the end of the second pitch I saw 2 screws with a piece of webbing and a carabiner hanging off of the equalized screws. The webbing was tan and it was slightly covered in snow so I didn't notice it at first but I was like OH DANG, thats coming with me! On the second rap while I was setting up the next V thread there was another one about 20 feet away, again the same setup. I almost wet my pants with excitement!! It was very odd to see someone using screws as rap anchors especially those screws, since those screws can be used as rap anchors themselves. The hanger is wide and smooth, so I was so confused. BUT there was no way I was just going to leave them there. I did leave a note at the trail head stating that if anyone could contact me with the types of screws left, type of odd setup it was, and what climb, they would get them back for massive quantities of beer. Checked accident reports as well, nothing. I now have 4 dmm rev screws on my rack!!!!

The funny thing is, that when Jim Ebert googles himself, (Which I'm guessing he does often), He's going to have a whole new appreciation for this site!
