I've donated about 6 quickdraws to this area.
Every single one has now been cleaned/stolen and is in the possession of someone other than the original owner....
I've put more up and they are a DONATION to this crag. Leave them alone - they're not yours! Have some respect and courtesy for other climbers trying to enjoy the area.
The routes here are hard and its nice to have an escape draw to bail on when your too pumped to get to the chains. It's also very convenient not to have to leave one of your new expensive quickdraws behind as well....
Seriously... pull your head out of your ass.

|I had some equipment from this area stolen as well. I would recommend tightened screw links on the bolt side of quick draws.|

I wish had read your posts before I left my draws on Bang and Blame. I went back for the send this weekend and someone had taken all of my draws. They had even taken the new carabiners off the anchor of Baby Bang.
This saddens me to know that someone here locally has such little respect for people in his/her community that he/she feels entitled to steal from them. All I can say is this F***** is accumulating some seriously bad karma!

NEH: the kid that took your draws is new to outside climbing and didn't know any better. He felt really bad when we told him he shouldn’t have taken them. I had him drop them off at the gym and you can pick them up any time. He didn’t take the biners off of Baby Bang.
On a side note: The BLM has asked that we not leave draws hanging in this area and mentioned how easy it was to rap in and hang draws then rap in to take them back down after. Just passing the word.
