I was amazed at how civil they were to him. And, at the thief's unconcern about theft.

taking a draw is not against law. in fact it is against the law to leave pieces on the wall and I do not understand why lazy sport climbers have to leave their unsafe draws on every wall.loose some of those fat pounds out of your love handles and carry six freaking draws on your harness and clip and clean it after you are done.And those draws are unsafe cause you do not know how many people have taken a fall on them and one of these days, one will break and kills a climber.

They weren't abandoned, they were on a route that was actively being worked on. The owners of the draws were known, they were safe to climb on. The ethics of the area dictate that leaving draws is an acceptable practice.

The world is a better place with people like the ones who found him handling the situation calmly. But I still wish he left wearing nothing but his underwear.

That isn't why fixed gear is unsafe, it is a reason why it could potentially be unsafe.

While the thief claimed they were "unsafe" and "badly worn" - they were not. The people who were working that route knew the draws and their history. The thief claimed that (apparently) all the draws on the route were unsafe, but the anchor biners were fine. There was a little discussion there where the owners pointed out that carabiners were normally shaped like the ones that were being stolen. Maybe he mistook bent gates for damage?

I somehow doubt that. It seems like the thief knew exactly what he was doing and he was just trying to cover his ass. That is, until he realized he was talking to the owner's of the gear.

ok, well let's say I ended up in the area and somehow I climbed and took a fall where I broke one of those biners.Do local climbers who know the history will take the responsibility if got hurt ?
