LOST - Mt. Bierstadt - single trekking pole

Postby aweygandt » Sun Jul 14, 2013 4:03 pm

Hello, I was near the top of Mt. Bierstadt on Saturday afternoon, when an electrically charged cloud moved in on us. I left a red Black Diamond Trailback trekking pole not too far off of the trail near where it meets the summit ridge. The pole was collapsed down, but I thought it might be attract lightning, so I left it.

The pole looks like this: http://www.rei.com/product/830470/black-diamond-trail-back-trekking-poles-pair

Another in my party did the same thing, but I'm not sure what kind of pole his was.

I'm going to try and find them later this week, but I know there will be plenty of people up there beforehand. Please email me at andrew.weygandt@gmail.com if you find it. Thanks!

I'll look on Thursday morning. But by that time there will have been two million people who have passed it.

I just hiked Bierstadt today and didn't come across any ....But I also wasn't on the lookout for it either since I didnt see this post until my return. Hope it turns up!

Thanks for letting me know. You saved me a drive up to the trailhead :)
