I lost my iPhone at the Grand Canyon five or six days ago, and my dad had the great idea of contacting climbers and offering a $100 reward if you're able to find it.
Here's the info you will need:
We were at the South Rim on the Rim Trail. If you start at Mather Point and walk left (west, I think), there are a couple observation points with railing that are often crowded with tourists. We walked past those to the first place with a ledge to climb out on that doesn't have railing. The ledge is before Yavapai Observation Station (as specified on the map I attached) and when you're climbing down (it requires a bit of maneuvering) you should see a tree covered in gum. We were out on the farthest part of the ledge and if my iPhone is somewhere down there, it's likely somewhere below there. The iPhone itself is a white 4S (the square shaped model) with an orange, pink, and purple case (here it is, for reference: society6.com/product/SUNSET-CAT_iPhone-Case). I really appreciate your help with this if you're interested. I absolutely promise to send you a $100 check if you're able to find it. I am a very honest person and truly just hoping to find my phone before it rains. Let me know if you're interested!
Here's approximately where we were.
