Good weekend for the Gunks, eh?

Friend of mine left a 0.75 camalot on Tequilla. Ah, the joys of walking mechs.

You grudgingly make an exception for 'project draws' while at the same time speak of the lameness of bail gear...Seriously?

Yours is, in large part, a question of context.

My grudging acceptance of project draws takes into account the modern reality that is sport climbing. Like it or not, (almost) everybody knows what project draws look like (and it ain't two draws on an anchor).

Context: trad climb: one or a few pieces of pro = booty.

Context: sport climb: a draw on every bolt = project draws.

Context: sport climb: two draws at a reasonably equipped anchor = booty.

Context: Tilted World: A piece of gear every six feet for the length of the pitch: heinous epic.

In the context of the RRG thread, we are very much discussing a mix of laziness and the party's misunderstanding of climbing's norms, not an epic or forced bail.

Heh. Which disgruntled poster are you on the RRG 'TR Project Draws' thread?

I don't get it. If you lost gear because you screwed up, I thought it was up for grabs? Unless it was an honest mistake, like you left it at the bast of the cliff, for instance...

Pretty much it is. It's just we'd rather someone we "know" grab it than an anonymous passer-by. And, if I know who lost an expensive piece of gear, I'm likely to try & give it back. Karma & all, right?

Or, we just want to sit back & watch the folks race each other to the cliffs to grab it. Sly

Thank you for contributing to my rack the neat and organized structure of this forum.

watch out, the vultures are lurking!

http://www.redriverclimbing.com/....php?f=7&t=13520

That's the best thread ever. My hat's off to Spirited, whoever he or she may be!

As for the changing ethics of climbing... I think if you were around just a scant 20 years ago, you know that gear left behind was booty, no questions asked. It's the expectation of getting gear back, or even lamer, of leaving it and expecting it to still be there weeks later, that is indicative of ever-growing gumby-ism.
This.

I never intentionally leave anything. I haven't even left a bail biner anywhere in about 3 years. That includes "project draws."

If I leave it, I've given someone booty. If I find it, it's mine.

The only exception is slings left when rapping down from certain routes. There I contribute willingly with gratitude toward others who've contributed before me.

I was at Erock on the Devil's Backslide and these guys were climbing in area most of the day. Well I was doing my first lead on Christine and I found 2 quickdraws. I forgot the name of the route with the ledge to the left of Christine, and I told I had 2 of their draws. I think it must have been their first time out on real rock and they said it wasn't theirs, but it was identical to what they climbing with. Their voices were a bit shakey in answering, so I figure it was nerves, and since they denied it those draws were mine.
Out on Turkey on Butterball, a guy couldn't get his anchor removed, so he said f*ck it. One of my climbing partners, asked if she could work on it, he said he wasn't waiting. So they left, she lead the route, got to the fixed anchors, and started to work on it. I nomally don't like boy scouts, but a troop leader was at the top wanting to set a rappell on the fixed anchors. He saw her working on that's guy gear, pulled a leatherman, anchor came off. We checked the items out on the internet., The sling dated 6 mos and the locker was about $25 and was a year old. It just had some sand that got trapped. Now I like finding gear like that.Tongue

This thread would be a lot more excitiing if people went out, got the booty, and then came back and posted pictures of said booty... having an after climb beer with the booty, eating dinner with the booty, crawling into bed with the booty. Show the previous owner how much you're enjoying your time with your new booty.

I just hope my #1 camalot finds someone that makes it happy.

Got a #8 BD nut on Marshalls Madness at Seneca last weekend. Wasn't set or anything, the wire had just slipped back in to the crack where I couldn't reach it with my fingers. Nut tool did the job but even the wire on another nut would have been enough to pull it to the surface to grab. People are so unresourceful.

Not that I needed a 3rd #8 but I couldn't just leave it there.Crazy

Soooo...... when i intentionally go on Manure Pile butress late on Sunday afternoon to clean-up the cams left behind - you now expect me to check in to see who lost it? If you or your partner can't clean a cam before you go up a 5-6 pitch climb and it takes me 30 sec or less why should i pay the shipping to send it to you?

Why don't you take a long walk off a short cliff?

That's where all the booty is to be found. Start right away, please.
