lost a single La Sportiva Focus (red/black, size 40, left shoe) on the north buttress of Mt. Conness on friday, August 2. it was dropped between boulders on the ridge at the top of the first rappel station (before the 1st pitch). a fellow climber behind our party that day spot it and confirmed it was just laying there, and it's not hard to get to.
i'm grateful that i still have my right shoe, but thought it wouldn't hurt to see if anyone is doing the north buttress on Conness soon and would be kind enough to pick it up? (i don't live in the area and would not be able to retrieve it myself anytime soon.)
by the way, the beauty of the mountain is truely magnificent and the technical section of the north buttress is very pleasurable (only 5.6, though exposed).
i will greatly appreciate it if some kind soul who is doing Conness soon would pick up that lonely shoe and contact me.
thankx and great climbing!
