It's always fun to talk about Booty. I want to hear about when you Got Some!

My tally for the weekend was 2 biners, one sling, and 3 nuts. Not bad!

My tally since January is 13 biners, 2 lockers, 4 slings, 11 nuts, 2 cams and a nut tool.

That's a lot of Booty!

How about you :?:

2 nice lockers. That's pretty good for Juneau. No one climbs trad in this town, and there are only a few places that even have trad lines.

hosh.

No booty this weekend, but I did drop 2 nuts while I was fiddling to get one in. Only noticed when I heard it hit my belayers head. That my friends, is even more fun than finding the booty.

Last fall I scored a BRAND NEW #3 friend in Zion that must have been placed and left by some poor newbie. The thing was tipped out but with a little coaxing she was mine. Lesson for the noob? Never give up on a cam in sandstone and always have a nut tool. :lol:

Ah, booty
between my partners and I:
- two quickdraws (with biners)
- a couple bail biners
- a big BD spectra sling
- one biner that was on top of a spire out of reach in a crack, however, i fished it out using my nut tool by dangling it down on its cord
- a BD belay device in a crack half way down the route!?! :shock:

In the past two weeks I picked up a #7 DMM Walnut and a pink Tricam.

Best ever was a 0.5 Camalot, three biners, and a shoulder length sling resting on a sloping ledge.

Other than that, numerous stoppers and a blue Tricam.

I just got back from climbing with dbrayack and clausti. Danno plucked a nut, two biners and a 24" runner from Burning Calves at Beaty Mtn. There's another nut still there, but I don't think it's coming out anytime soon. Maybe early in the AM when the rock's still cold.

And the chances are pretty good whoever left those biners is someone you know and probably have climbed with. :lol:

And what do you do with all that junk? Except for the occasional cam, the rest is not very valuable. I have more nuts than I need already, cams too for that matter. My buddy rarely even leads but he is fascinated by being able to dislodge a crappy tortured nut from a crack to add to his outdated gear stash back at home.

One sunny day I and a partner hiked in to climb a couple Circus Wall routes at Moore's. Thinking we'd start on Zoo View, we scampered up a talus slope to the bottom of a ramp to find a brand spankin' new rope hanging from the Crow's Nest Ledge, where several popular routes begin. It's also the main way down other than a long-ish walk off.

The rope had a note taped to it written on the back of a business card. I don't remember the exact text of the note, but it went something like this: "Rope stuck on rappel. Would appreciate a call. (XXX-XXX-XXXX)" It was signed, "James."

We climbed the entrance pitch to the ledge and saw the problem. Eschewing the standard thread-through rap anchor for reasons unknown, James had instead opted for a large dead tree behind it. The tree held, no problem -- it was quite big -- but the climbers were unable to handle the friction generated by the thick 11mm rope. Perhaps it was dark and they felt unsafe ascending the rope. Perhaps it was raining. Who knows? I coiled the rope, pocketed the note and we continued with our day.

Normally, when I find gear on a climb and there's nobody around to claim it, that shit's mine. It's the Law of Booty and I obey it. But this was big -- a whole rope! I would have felt guilty if I hadn't at least tried to call James. So later that night after getting home, I grabbed the note and dialed. I waited through several rings and there was no answer. No voice mail, either. Huh, I thought. The next day, I tried again with the same result. I let it ring, 20, 30, 50 times, with no luck. Every day for over two weeks I called that number faithfully. I called at different times of day, often multiple times a day. Still no answer.

Finally, out of curiosity, I called the number on the front of the card. A man at the other end picked up almost immediately...

Him: "Hello?"
Me: "Hi, may name is Jay. This is going to seem kind of weird, but I found something at Moore's Wall in Hanging Rock State Park belonging to a guy named James. Is there a James there?"
Him: "Who?"
Me: "James. I have something of his. If he can tell me what it is, I'll send it off to him."
Him: "James? Oh, yeah, yeah! I know James!"

CLICK

Me: "Hello?"

No answer. He hung up! Or... we got disconnected. I called the number again and got voice mail.

Me: "Listen, I've been trying to reach James at the number he left for over two weeks. If he wants his property back he can reach me through Inner Peaks, the climbing gym in Charlotte. My name is Jay."

I started using the rope about a week later and never looked back. James never tried to contact me. I still fix it to take photos and occasionally toprope with it. Nobody can say I didn't try.

But here's the deal: James, if you're out there and you can PM the name of the company on the front of that business card, I'll give you back your rope... a little worse for wear. :lol:

So far no booty scored, all that I've found hasn't been worth retrieving (messed up cams, worn slings...). However, I left a practically new #8 metolius curve nut on Stately Pleasure Dome in the meadows yesterday. It's off route to the right at the top of Great White Book. Feel free to send it back to me if you find it :wink:

Excuse the small tangent, but how much do 'yall trust the synthetic booty you collect (e.g.. slings, webbing, dogbones, etc...).

I've collected a few draws and each time I've replaced the dogbones with new ones. I figure you never know how long they have been baking in the sun, plus a $17 BD draw is totally worth the $3.50 I spent on buying a petzl express bone.

What are everyone's thoughts?
