There is a number two camalot on pitch 16 that is not stuck. If you retrieve it, can I please have it back? I was told after the climb that the cam was stuck and with a storm over head, it would have been hard too go back and retrieve.

In exchange, I will make you cookies, deliver really bad jokes, and be eternally grateful!

love,

I have no shame. I'm a poor college student sponsered by student loans. lol I don't think the cam is stuck....it's not over cammed. My partner said it was stuck, but I think its retrievable.

I'm also not really expecting a return. Thought it'd be worth a shot if people I kne saw this and returned it if they were getting on it!

And thanks John! hope to see ya out west again.

I'll vouch for Alix too. She can tell bad jokes.

Her stoke is high, she gets after it, and her only jacket is almost entirely duct tape at this point. That's got to be worth something, right?

Hello
I was her partner who could not get the cam out. What Alix means (as I understand) is that the cam is probably not 'FIXED' (with no approaching storm I might have been able to get it out…who knows). However, it is 'STUCK' if I tried to pull it out (for several minutes) and couldn’t even move it (not sure how that is considered “not over-cammed”). Thanks to anyone if they do climb the route and return the cam. However, realistically this thread will only bring up trolling. SirTobyThe3rd

Alix,
Were you on Lurking Fear with Brian this past weekend? If so, I'd love to give him shit for you for losing your cam.

No, although I do know Brian. That's what spurred this post. They were going to get on it this weekend, but I don't think they will anymore.


What do you call a bear with no teef?

I was the one who got the cam stuck. I was the second in the party of 3 and I actually replaced the cam. The cam may have swiveled a bit from Alix's placement but when I got to it, it was in a just ok position. I saw a much better placement and replaced it. It was only when I was above the cam that I saw why Alix's didn't use my placement idea-it was in a perfect foot hold. I ended up standing on the cam, half out of laziness, half out of...well I guess it was all laziness. Anyway, I heard what sounded like cam lobes crunching and slipping and kept my mouth shut when Sir Toby said he couldn't clean it. I didn't actually weight the cam with my foot but I did probably tweak it when I climbed above. Many thanks for a safe return. Maurice Chaunders

I randomly ran into Brian this weekend up on Dinner and he mentioned that he didn't get very far on Lurking Fear because he was under the weather.

Mike, Don't feel bad. My partner had to take a hammer and nut tool to my original CCH off-set because I over-cammed it. Still works but shit happens.

After reading your post last week my partner and I decided to change are plans from rapping the Nose to rapping Lurking fear so we could get some booty. It took more than a half hour to get that cam out, damn that thing was in there good! Only problem is when I got it out I accidentally dropped it trying to clip it on my harness. It fell a long way, but we found it when we got down. I was going to keep it but it could have micro fractures now. So if you want it back send me a pm, or im going to chuck it.
Ill be in the valley this weekend rapping the Nose, if you want to meet up.

Hello
You should still pass it to ALix. She could sell it on craigslist and say the cam never had any falls, and was never dropped. I mean it was made in China, should be bomber like a tank. SirTobyThe3rd
