Hi All,
Was climbing with a Buddy on Tuesday the 8th of Dec 09 on Tiger wall at Araps, when some low life stole some of our gear left at the bottom.
I'm posting this msg in hope that someone might see or hear of some gear for sale etc. i suspect these two guys. (one overweightish, black with a nz accent) wern't climbers.
The gear that went missing is

-12m of 5-6mm Spectra cord with crab attached- green
-60m dry 9.8mm dynamic- green in colour
-polar fleece macpac jacket- red with two burn marks in the right shoulder -like all good outdoor gear
-1 yellow HB cam with crab -small (.3)
-1 orange HB cam with crab - small (.2)

-1 New guide book- with contact numbers in there for my climbing partner
- climbing shoes- yellow scarpa thunders 44?
- 8 or so screw gate crabs
- 2-3 120mm quickdraws
- tibloc, pulley and a few prussiks
-1 red caribee day pack
- white pair of sunnies
- black Karbon jumper (hotham staff jumper without the hotham emblem attached)

So please if you see anything, please give me a call or horsham police. this has left a major sour taste in my mouth..... so not happy.
thanks guys. Dan coletti 0421 393 520

Was your hardware marked in any particular manner (e.g. nail polish, texta etc)?

Karma will catch up with the thief or even better a chocky member with a number 11 hex! I normally reserve my larger hex for punter pounding but I'm sure pounding a overweight theif could be fun!

Surely someone noticed a couple of guys, who didn't look like climbers, carrying all that stuff back to their car.

This is bad news.
I hope it is recovered quickly and returned to you in good order.

fark, that's outrageous. does this happen often at araps or other crags? it does in the uk a fair bit, but that's just because of all the pikies.

sorry to hear about that, its really bad news. Its quite disturbing and strange to think that 2 non climbers would find themselves at Arapiles and then proceed to walk to the base of the cliff and pinch some rather worthless gear...Karma will get the buggers

That's what I think too. It's weird.

... after yesterdays posts on this site, I have decided that there is no accounting for the logic of some people.
