Hello,

I recently had draws stolen off of the route "Weapons of Mass Destruction" at the Riverside Quarry. The route starts up on a ledge to the left of the "Metro Sector." The route is not easy to get to and is 5.13a so someone worked pretty hard to get them.

If you hear anything please let me know (matthew.hulet@yahoo.com) stay safe and watch your gear.

Sorry to hear that, man. Don't they know stolen gear is bad karma? Hopefully you get your kit back.

No, actually, someone is just a PoS thief.

There is nothing wrong with leaving project draws on a route at the quarry, and if anyone takes them, they deserved to be treated like any other thief. My guess is that the SoB either rapped or aided the route - its difficult to believe that anyone weenie enough to steal draws is strong enough to lead 13s.

Hope you get your gear back Matt. I am reminded of when someone stole Steve's draws off some 5.13 quarry route, but then returned them after Steve posted a message like you did.
