Lost Ice Axe on Shuksan

Post by WildSnow.com blogger | June 7, 2009      

Hey everyone, I lost my ice axe at the Shannon Ridge trailhead for Mt. Shuksan. It is an orange black diamond ice axe, it is/was probably sitting in the parking lot. Anyone got it? Would sure appreciate getting it back. If you can help, just leave a comment here or contact us via the contact link above.

Also, if anyone can cross post this over to TGR or TAY, appreciated.

Thanks, Louie Dawson

    Sure hope it didn’t fall into a creek.

    Does this mean I should bring an extra this weekend?

    Jordan, I think he can borrow one up there if necessary, or he said he might just get another one.

    Is that the one that BD sported you for your NOLS course?

    I already posted it to cascadeclimbers and TAY, as well as the northwest forum on summtipost. I also emailed the Forest Service, although I don’t know if I used the right email address.

    It is the same model as the one I used at NOLS, but I left that one in Austria (seems I have a bad habit of leaving ice axes everywhere).
