Hey all,

Left my draws up on Monster Slayer a few weeks ago and went back today to find the lowest one missing. I understand it's a risk but anybody climbing at this level should know better, and if they're working the climb, happy that the draws are up.

I cleaned everything on the start aka Cyclops, the easier RHS variant, which meant whoever did it needed to pull into the harder moves to reach it. I take some solace in the fact that whoever did it was too weak to pull the crux and nab the rest.

Got chased out of there by a lightning storm today so i didn't get a chance to get the rest. Fingers crossed whoever is nabbing gear doesn't do it again before i can get back.

I don't want the draw back cause whoever has this kind of ethic i wouldn't trust the way they handled gear anyways. But if anybody sees a yellow DMM draw with bright green tape on it tell that person they're a dickhead.

Cheers, J.

Lightning storms overhead are scary.

Oh, wow. I was wondering who would leave a draw sitting on a low hanging bolt. I appreciate the free gear but you really shouldn't leave those up there. This helped to round out my second set of draws for multipitch. My regards.

Cheers, G.

Bummer,


FYI- you can hang and strip that route from the easy one next to it, so no need to lose more draws on that one move wonder.

I personally don't agree with leaving fixed draws. That being sad, I also don't think it's cool to swipe other people's gear. It's not uncommon for hikers to grab draws if they're reachable from the ground or with some relatively easy climbing as some sort of souvenir or some shit. If you're going to leave draws behind, I would suggest at least taking the first draw with you when you leave. Sorry you lost your draw. Marc H

I'm not a crusher; I just spray a lot.
JWatt: The rest of your draws weren't up on it today. Hope you sent and took 'em down, but if it wasn't you, it's time for you to start making threats on the internet, or just start taking your gear home with you. George Perkins
