Extracted from The Advertiser (Bendigo, Vic), Monday, Sept 5 2005

Rock climbing equipment was stolen from a popular central Vic adventure-tourism destination last week. Valued at more than $5600, the gear was taken from Mt Kooyoora Tourist Park at Melvilles Caves. Inglewood police are investigating the theft which happened b/w 11am and 2pm on Thursday, Sept 1. They said a climbing instructor was teaching a group about rock climbing and had left the equipment near the lower car park at Mt Kooyoora. When the instructor returned to the site the equipment was gone. Anyone with information should phone Inglewood police on (03) 5438 3200

Sounds like the gear was not locked in a car - but maybe just the way the media have reported the story? Even if it wasn't locked away, it does not excuse any one for taking, though it does provide a way to help stop it happening again. Given how you often leave some equiptment at the bottom of a multipitch climb, in a rucksack, you have to trust other climbers when some of your gear is out of sight.

Lets hope they get caught .. any one got a description of the stuff?

The gear was left hidden at a carpark near the court yard area. It was out of sight from the road at the time. The gear belongs to the Bendigo regional YMCA. Any help will be great.
