Gear stash on TM

Postby Hilton » Fri Apr 17, 2015 9:19 am

Guys and girls, help please!
This is a case of deja vu all over again (to quote Yogi Berra, the malapropism king).
Tienie and I made a new route on Grotto Buttress on TM a couple of months ago. This it the buttress overlooking Camps Bay and is on the other side of Fountain Ravine from the Fountain Ledge climbing area. I mentioned it on the forum (Tapestry of Life).
When we finished the climb I left my blue Backpacker Thar backpack with a 200m static rope in it all wrapped up in a bright orange Karrimor survival bag tucked away in a little cave. The cave is at about the same level as Fountain Ledge path, but over on Grotto Buttress and far away from any paths or obvious access.
Anyway, this past weekend Guy and I had a great need for the rope and went to collect it, only to find it gone.
I've talked with the cable car company, National Parks, the MCSA, and some climbers.....nothing.
Please...please...if you can shed any light on this!
