Climbing in Glencoe

Today Chuck and I headed up to North Buttress East Face of Bauchaille Etive Mor and started off on Crows Nest Crack (VS 4c). I led up the first pitch and came across quite a few wet and slimy hold so I think it could have done with an extra dry day! The reason we went up to this area was that if the weather forecast was right, we could have had other easier options in the rain. It turned out the weather forecast was wrong. Anyway after rapping of the top of the first pitch, the ropes became jammed so we both soloed up Shackle route which is a great Severe climb. After retrieving the rope we went to look at some routes on Rannoch wall, but the wet got the better of them so we decided to solo Agag's (VD) and down climb Curved Ridge. Nice productive day. Can you work out what important item of equipment I left in the car?
