Lost Balls
« on: February 04, 2014, 09:36:08 AM »

I seem to have lost my balls somewhere in the vicinity of Mt. Washington Valley, or Crawford Notch.  I have no tape or or whatever to indicate they are mine...but I will know them when I see them.  Small and blue.  I climbed Goofers last weekend and felt all skittish.  Musta been the wobbly tool placements that spooked me.  I am hopeful the balls will be found soon, as there are at least 6 weeks of winter left and I will need them.

I think IME has a sale on all their rental balls at the end of the season.  Perhaps you can pick up a slightly used pair at that time. ;) ;) ;)

If you're lucky you'll get them back, with a brand new spit-shine, on Valentines Day.  If not, you could always take advantage of the set that comes with the purchase of a new Go Pro.

Found a pair at the base of Remission, but they were solid brass.
Didn't fit me either. Free shipping.

Have you checked with the wife? For most of us married guys, that's where the missing balls went.

FWIW Wild Country recalled my nuts this fall, but recently returned them to me, all shiny, in a box! 8)
