Okay, not entirely. There's a #4 metolius 4-cam 50' up Tonka Tower's west face that didn't feel like coming out during a mini-epic this weekend.
Be advised, the climb's a big mudpile, could be construed as PG or R, and Green's beta for the climb is dead wrong. One pitch, no anchors on the ledges, one bolt to the supposed first belay and two bolts above (actually all drilled pins, now with new quicklinks attached for our in-the-dark retreat).
If anyone's interested, it's a nice new cam, only been there since Sunday. I'd be especially happy if someone wanted to retrieve it and send it to me, but that'd be asking a lot I know. I'll be back out in a month and wouldn't be surprised to find it still there, with as little traffic as the tower gets. If ya do find it, let me know. If you send it back, I'll buy ya food and beer and climb with ya next time I get out (Indian Creek trip imminent).
Thanks, and good luck.
