Green Boots

Green Boots is a Shlage Everest CL. It was named after the unidentified climber in neon green boots who’s body was and might still be used as a landmark for climber’s on their way to the peak. The bag it comes in was sewn by a family member from Tibetan prayer flags. These flags litter the peak of Everest, left there by brave sherpas.

WHO PUT BELLA IN THE WITCH ELM

“Who put Bella down the Witch Elm?” is graffiti that appeared in 1944 following the 1943 discovery by four children of the skeletonised remains of a woman inside a wych elm in Hagley Wood, in Worcestershire, England. The victim—whose murder is estimated to have occurred in 1941—remains unidentified, and the current location of her skeleton and autopsy report is unknown. Many theories have been shared from a result of witchcraft all the way to the unidentified victim being a nazi informant. The graffiti implies some know the victims name and likely much more. Since at least the 1970s, similar graffiti has sporadically appeared on the Hagley Obelisk near to where the woman’s body was discovered, which asks again and again, “Who put Bella in the Witch Elm?” Perhaps we won’t ever unlock the secrets to this case, but you might be the right detective to crack open this lock.
