I couldn't believe my eyes when I arrived here at Cape Wild Bivi, the top of 5 on Scorched Earth. Over to my right, the pitch on Aurora was festooned with gear! [Great word, that...] Evidently it had been left behind by a retreating party which had to down-aid the pitch. This could prove to be one of the most booty-licious coups of all time! If only I could get there......
[Pete's eyes aren't as good as mine, especially without my 300mm lens. All
he could see was a bunch of Booty. When I came up and used my camera as a
telescope, he couldn't believe it as I called out what I saw: two Yellow
Aliens, two Purple #4 Camalots, a few smaller cams, some stoppers,
biners, lockers, slings and even a pair of aiders. Basically, it was a complete
trad rack! - Tom]
But with all that booty just waiting to be plundered - ARRRR, may-tee! - I knew that I just had to find a way!
Anyway, enough with the drooling - it's time to get to work and haul those pigs!
