Lost & Found / Re: Lost Ice Tool Pinnacle Buttress

Hope he gets it back! I've only done the first two pitches of the Buttress in the winter... bet the rest of the route is a fun mixed climb... Fairy Tale traverse in crampons would definitely be exciting!

Was so sorry to hear this. Spent many days climbing with John BITD. He was a fun person to hang out with, climb with and of course apres climb activities were always a gas. He will be missed. Thoughts and prayers are with Rose at this time. RIP John.

Bummer, John was a good friend and a rock climber with the ability to climb some scary stuff. He ran the  racket club climbing wall in Dedham about 25 years ago and was generous enough to allow me access there. Positive people like him teach the rest of us how to enjoy the good life we are fortunate to have and not  moan about the little things.

So sorry to hear of John's passing. I never met him, but he certainly was a colorful personality on many forums. It always amazed me how he could stand on his feet, on tiny holds, for such a big guy.

Lost & Found / Lost Ice Tool Pinnacle Buttress
« Last post by jgehrig on March 30, 2017, 04:24:33 PM »
My partner dropped his ice tool from the 4th pitch of Pinnacle Buttress last Sunday. It's a DMM Switch, and it probably landed somewhere low on the buttress.

If anyone finds it, I'll make sure a few beers are sent their way.

John

Sad news indeed! His reputation and online persona preceded himself.  I enjoyed his authentic commentary, knowledge and history of routes and areas, and overall badassness!

A loss to the climbing community
