FOUND: Trekking poles on Wetterhorn Peak

Postby mcquentin » Sun Jul 28, 2013 3:37 pm

I found a pair of nice trekking poles while climbing Wetterhorn on Saturday, July 27th... please contact me to identify and claim them. I'll put them in the post to you - no problem.

These might be the hiking poles I left when I climbed Whetterhorn on July 7th. I cannot remember the brand, but they were red and I left them in a pull out area about a 3/4s of a mile below the trailhead parking area, which was on the righthand side of the road as you were driving up.

Hi Jeff;

The poles are red, but the location is way off. Can you describe them? Anything unique about them (there is something very unique)? Do you have a photo of you with them anywhere?

I was able to find a picture of them from my climb of Mt. Whitney in May, however I'm not in the picture. The brand was Black Diamond, although there isn't anything too distinguishing about them. It doesn't sound like the poles you found were mine.

Thanks anyway Malcolm.

Jeff

Hi Jeff.

These are Black Diamond and are red. Sounds crazy, but maybe someone found, used and left your poles elsewhere? These poles have a foam grip on the shaft right below the handle. Does that sound right?

Possibly? Although I took a closer look at the pictured of my poles, and I didn't see any foam grip on the shaft below the handle. Is the foam on both poles? Was it something attached by the owner, or is it part of the poles, put on by Black Diamond? Maybe someone stuck it on them after they found my poles?

Thanks again Malcom

Jeff
