I remember losing a new pair of Black Diamond Guide gloves at a mountain hut ages ago. (The Abbott Pass Hut for you Albertans.) I suppose I didn't really lose them because I realized the day after that I forgot them at the hut.
I thought about going back up to retrieve them but after thinking about the slog to Lake Ohara followed by a scramble up a pathetic choss filled gully only to face the possibility that they were gone just wasn't worth it. Even if the gloves cost me $140.
Oh yeah, I also promised a partner of mine that I'd meet him at the Columbia Icefields the day after that so I had no choice but to pay $120 for a new pair of overpriced gloves at Wilson Sports in Lake Louise. (I was visiting from Toronto and had no car.)
Now that was annoying and painful !
