When does abandoned gear become booty? 3-Sep-2016 At 4:23:46 PM Drake

Yo robbio,

I would speculate that the party did use both pieces for the first abseiler, loading only one piece, with the other as a backup. After the first abseiler got down on the first piece without dying, the second abseiler cleaned the backup piece and went down protected only by the first piece. That's complete speculation, of course, and doesn't explain why they didn't choose the obvious placement for the primary piece.... but this kind of temporary backup is fairly common practice for bailing.
