Lost on Lamplighter

1 x nut on the second pitch

1 x Black Diamond cam at the second belay ledge.

My valiant second couldn't extricate said pieces.

Not sure what the current beer/gear exchange rate is but will pony up to get it back.

Reply in this thread or email darkpromenade@hotmail.com

Cheers!

Hope you get your gear back. If not, I hope your second ponies up to replace your lost gear;)

I lost a #2 nut on that route also via a valiant second. Long gone no doubt, seems to be a booty eater

I found my favourite wire on Lamplighter some 15-20 years ago. It is a mid-sized stopper with gentle taper and lots of surface area of unknown brand. It works great and still has pride of place on my rack.

I lost my #3 cam on there sometime in the mid-90s. If someone could return it I would be very amused.

I lost my confidence on pitch 3 once, and now take the 15 to the left.

You only lost your confidence? Mate, I lost my innocence at that belay and after lighting my flame, she now only boulders when not toying with footballers.

Your thread title reads like you lost Lamplighter! Now, that would be quite the achievement. If anyone finds the misplaced climb, how much beer is that worth?

I would believe you "got" lost on lamplighter... whenyou get into that weird ledge with the peg in the corner, it's hard to believe you are expected to scramble over that slab and then cut loose over the valley below... what a climb.... I lost my **** dangling over that traverse.

More to the point, how much to get it installed somewhere I can go for a lap in the afternoon?

I had a friend get lost on Lamplighter back in the dark ages when he was just learning to climb and somehow made his way across the judgement day traverse in a pair of volleys.

Why not drop it in Brunswick? There's been talk of building a bouldering wall there anyway.

I assume it's the entire Pharos that's missing. So just plonk it down on Sydney Rd. Of course, some name changes will be required in order to fit with its new geography. As such, "Punks in the Gym" will be renamed to "Hipsters in the Gym", while "India", "Ethiopia", and "Somalia" will be renamed to "Coburg", "Fawkner", and "Campbellfield", respectively.

The "judgement day" traverse is still makes me poop my pants everytime I think about the first time I did it. Volleys is an effort.

I had a friend who managed to get lost on Lamplighter too. But this friend wasn't exactly learning to climb - he was supposedly an experienced climber who was taking his girlfriend climbing.

Probably his first mistake was to not bother with climbing shoes due to Lamplighter being the lowly grade of 14, so he started up in thongs. His next mistake involved not checking the route description properly and following the chalk onto Judgement Day (grade 19). His next mistake was to then to deviate out of Judgement Day and follow the chalk up The Second Coming (22). By this stage he was swearing at how difficult the climbing was for grade 14 and had to kick his thongs off and thrash his way to the belay barefoot.

Should you ever want to climb with someone who shows this much sound judgement, his name is Mike Weeks.

Volleys are quite reasonable for smearing, but are atrocious for edging...
