Stolen Climbing gear (Again!!)
7:17:42 AM
Hi All,
After picking up my new car (ford courier crew cab - awesome find) we packed our car for the long weekend only to find in the morning that my pack had been stolen (again). This time a blue 65 litre cerro torre lowe alpine pack (christmas present, bugger) with my full rack in it now around 5 months old.
Features of the rack include:
- black diamond cams sizes 0.4 - 4
- two sets of black diamond nuts
- one set of micro- nuts
- black diamond blue harness (small)
- 2 locking oval petzl gates
- ATC - XP belay device
- cinch auto-locking belay device
- daisy chain, and about 6 slings
- 3 pairs of climbing shoes (red chilli - blue, 5.10 - blue and orange - something).

Anyway you get the idea, other slings and draws and gates etc. I'd really appreciate it if any one hears anything about this gear to let me know. Again it was taken in the brunswick area. I can feel it's going to be my lucky year, or maybe there is something wrong with me having a rack as since i've had it about 5 months it's been stolen twice now, do you think it's a sign?

Hope everyone had a great long weekend, we had an awesome it at buffalo.

Do you lock the doors?
10:19:47 PM
yep! they did the locks though they probably weren't the most high tech looking into it so it doesn't happen again.

its proberly some sport climber that dont belive in trad and is trying to teach you a lesson.

just like those trad climbers that cut boltsthat they dont climb on.

good luck finding your gear dude

thanks for the support but this time looks like my gear is gone. not sure i'd like to start the trad v's sports debate and i'm definately not cutting anything, always happy to see those silver shinny pieces of easy pro.

sad to hear about your stolen gear Naomi.

What I do is leave my pack inside the house before I go away, just incase.
Hope you find your stuff.

Yeah, I'll second that.

>Again it was taken in the brunswick area.
Are there any community / groups in that area that can be 'mopokes' for you; ie keep a lookout for your gear turning up in various locations in the same way the lookouts were on the case of the stolen single speed bike recently?

thanks for the condolences, think i might have finally put the tissues down and the voilins away. yep looks like will have to store with stuff in the house.

Not sure it was the brunswick bikey gang but there is a guy that always walks past every night asking 'got a smoke'. he seems dodgy but doesn't look like the climbing type - not to make any generalisations.

my 'mopokes' are the climbing community so hopefully something will come up.

Not a bad idea, M9.

I'd image stuff like that would be next to impossible to sport in a climbing scenario (eg, everyone has BD wires, etc). Theft-converters is a different story. I'll also wear my Prahna T-shirt in the hopes that I look like a hot-climbing-gear-buying candidate. We're on the case, Naomi

Sorry to hear about your gear. Its a pretty shit feeling particularly when you choose each piece carefully. Brunswick is v. bad for this sort of thing. Lived there for one year and lost two car stereos. The second one went on Christmas morning.
