lets talk about lost gear,... now also booty found 4-Mar-2004 At 10:55:30 AM Nico
... hmmm ... some curly definitions here. Is a rope ever booty? We left one behind once, in the confusion of a night departure from Booroomba, hurrying to get to Tharwa for a beer before the shop closed ... eventually some honest folks from Outward Bound returned the rope to us. If a rope becomes booty, would you trust it? I've certainly got more serendipitous bits of metal on my rack, than things that I ever bought. But if I find nylon slings they become useful tie-down cords for the ute, and the occasional nut-on-cord gets the new cord treatment. Carabiners? I've heard of laboratory tests showing hairline fractures in dropped metal - but there are plenty of ways of using a doubtful carabiner and not wasting a good climbing krab for carrying shoes or chalk or camera. And we talk about climbing ethics ... :)
