This lost and found thread is a great don't get me wrong... But when I start to look down this lost and found list we (climbers) are leaving our crap everywhere. Hundreds of dollars worth of gear get left behind every week.

Lets try a little harder to do a last check before leaving an area. I find climbing related items every time I hike/climb in eldo.

I am just as guilty as the rest and am not pointing fingers this is just a friendly reminder to double check you have your stuff before leaving the crag.

Cams above the arm bar moves on Three Pigs in a Slot, Indian Creek.

Sometimes your stuff gets left behind by someone else. Then you're screwed.

Where? Wouldn't you like to know. You have to buy me a beer, then I will tell you.

That's why they invented the "Dumb-Dumb" check.

I do it every time, everywhere, cause I am a dumbass who misplaces stuff.
It is truly crazy to see how much people "forget".

This is a novel auto blocking belay device.  I think it works quite well, depending on rope thickness and sheath quality, it belays very smooth.  Great to lower with.  You gotta love over engineering.  $3 at a gear swap!

You mean I have to find my way to the climb, find my route, get up safely, get down safely and remember to bring my stuff home? I don't know.....

Gear can be recycled and used, plus I can't help but get that pirates tingle inside when I find gear and nobody claims it. I think personally its the garbage at the crag that is more of an issue...I doubt anybody looks at a sling, cam, or a nut and just says oh well...someone else will pick it up.

The low number of new threads in the lost and found versus the number of people climbing I would say this is more of a non-issue.

I'd say that this problem has probably not worsened all that much throughout the years...the proliferation of internet forums just highlights the issue in a way that it was never exposed before

Eh things happen. That being said it always amazes me when people leave their entire rack or snowboards / skis. Those are pretty big items.

Guess it's like my dad used to say to me.."you'd forget your head if it wasn't attached to you".
