So I was in jtree this weekend over in the Indian cove area and as I was passing by Willit tower I look up and lo and behold there are 5 peices of gear sitting on a route. Methinks to myself that's weird. So I grab a buddy and run up there. They are ancient peices of gear!!! Two old choinard u stems, two nuts, and a ugly hex all with hand tied slings and old ovals. Now I wanna know what happened. Why was there that much hear left on a route that I would say goes at 5.4?

Also there was a sling with a oval on it at the top of the climb right next to the walk off. You want your trash back, tell me what happened and I will send it back. Otherwise I am starting a museum with this stuff.

Jon.

Maybe an old guy had a big heart grabber mid route and then left for the hospital. You never know.

Well woodchuck, you tell me who that old guy is and I'll bring him his gear back.

Boyscouts gang roping nearby where old man booty was found, abandoned? Sounds like a CSI episode waiting to be written. Also, you should offer that old man booty to folks who can't get their own, perhaps on the free gear thread? lol</quote

No way! That is my collection! I won't give that crap to anyone to climb on.

Theory that some young guys went out with all of dads old gear and didn't know what they were doing...
