Cat and Kate’s Climbing Crisis

$5,599 of $3,000 goal

Raised by 89 people in 8 months
Created April 30, 2018
A quick stop for tips from a Barcelona climbing gym turned into losing everything but the clothes on our backs.
So thankful to have had our wallets and passports on us at the time. But everything else is gone, stolen out of the rental car in a smash and grab. All of our climbing gear, rope and harnesses. All of our clothes. Shoes. Laptop. Cameras. Tent. Sleeping bag.  
Catherine quit her job just prior to the trip. 
Kate was working part of this trip remotely, impossible without her laptop.
Our insurance didn’t cover belongings, after all.  Always double check the fine print. 

We can’t hope to replace the personal items or all of our stuff, but to be able to get enough to salvage the rest of the trip would be a dream. Honestly we hate to even ask but we can’t think how to make this work on our own. Any help at all is beyond amazing.

We were able to purchase some basics through thrift stores and some local sale sections yesterday.

Turns out today is a holiday in all of Spain, so almost everything is closed. So we stay one last night with our gracious host Edison, who has been a beacon of light in the midst of this mess, making us feel safe and at home. Joking about his cordless vacuum aka Freddy Mercury (I want to break free...) and making us laugh.

Tomorrow we will be able to go to the Spanish version of MEC, called Decathalon, and find new gear thanks to all of your generosity, and get this climbing show on the road!!
Next stop Albarracin.

We are so overwhelmed, first with what happened, and now in quite the opposite direction with the outpouring of generosity. We can’t thank everyone enough. This morning there was a very serious conversation of going home because we just couldn’t replace everything we needed to continue. We are so SO grateful. Thank you all so much for this help.
