Hey, Pat, I got your message. I'm definitely into getting some river time with you cats. And yes! That's our key!

He gets blamed for everything else around here, why not this too. I don't know about you guys but I'm not going climbing in the gorge until all this is resolved. And hey Cinnamon Johnson, if that's even you're real name. I agree with Limeydave. If you can get those draws down North Carolina style "from the ground up" then you can have 'em.

Shocked

Someone glued a line of fake hangers?? *boggle* Hopefully there where no injuries...

TYeah I was wondering about the glued bolts thing too?!? Isn't that a trad route anyway?

Blah…blah…blah…..man…..listen to all you bitch about this and that…..I see it as quite simple…..If you leave your gear hanging on a public climbing crag…..its called booty…..If you don’t want it to be booty…..take it with you. So…..If you want to take it….take it…..if you don’t want to….don’t. But the person leaving it there really has no room to complain about gear being taken when they consciously left it at the crag.

Mr. Johnson,
as a local GOB(Good Ole Boy) drunk climber with a disdain for authority of any kind, I believe we REALLY should SERIOUSLY take care of this ourselves. Maybe we can hide out in the rhodos and wait for said climber to show up, hoping to redpoint his proj, then when he wanders off in search of the next home for his fixed draws we can pilfer his pack for gear. if you leave your stuff unattended at the crag it is fair game,.. right. that ought to teach this "climber" what the NRG is all about. Self-Important Irrational Nazi Climbing Police. gone are the days of trust and understanding in the climbing community and we need to remind this insolent bastard of that fact. We are now a community of internet post'ers having Brokeback ethical debates about issues that could be solved over beer and a couple of good natured slaps to the head. forgive me if I seem agitated, but it's 10 am, raining at the New and I haven't started pounding beer bombs yet.

Hey Freeforsum, You're from Oregon. Dude, there is soooo much booty hanging off of this secret crag out there that the locals call "Smith Rock". You should go get it all down. Then you'd have enough rack to go 5.8 trad climbing, get some sweet hand jams, be a real soul climber. But if I see you out here taking draws off the cliff at the New I'm going to pummel you with my stick clip. Renegade sport climber justice, you know what I'm saying. And yes, someone glued a line of bolts up easily flakey. Yes, it is a trad route. They looked exactly real from the outside and were strong enough to hold a draw with the rope passing through it but not strong enough to hold body weight. No one was hurt. But it does beg the question. How many fixed draws at the new are attached to fake, glued on, bolt hangers? And how many of those baked in the sun, UV damaged, fixed draws will break before the epoxy holding the bolt hanger to the rock? It seems like toproping is the only safe thing to do these days and even then...not from the two bolt fixed anchors at the top. I'll be equalizing three bomber trees for my topropes from now on.

I hope the NPS catches whoever did that. Somebody is looking at jail time.

Wow. So, are the fake bolt "decorations" removed by now, or are they still there, sort-of "all the locals know that it is fake, let some visiting gumby get on it"?

I can't believe a CLIMBER would do something like that. No matter how bitter, or angry, or whatever. This seems like a criminal act to me...
