I went to Red Rock Canyon open space to climb a little after work on monday and noticed that there were quite a few bolts that appear to have been stolen. Anybody know anything about this on here? The bolts stolen were off of very easy and high use routes that they like to take kids of for an easy intro to climbing outdoors. Seems like a major dick move Phil Eastburn

Flynt added a note to the RRC page.

I saw 2 missing of the start of the Billy's Ghost Dance, the 5.5 on Westbay Wall, Which is a shame as it's a nice introduction to leading route. Also saw the first one missing off Finnacle on the Whale.

Major dick move indeed.

I emailed MER and Geronimo. I doubt this was a climber, just a douche taking the low hanging fruit. Maybe they'll be dumb enough to try to move them. I asked both retailers to say they don't buy used hangers, but they know a guy who does. And to pass on my email :)
