The draw on the 5th bolt of Ain't no Sunshine got fire bombed, probable with flaming ghetto mattress on a stick, if your up there or its yours I probably wouldnt use it.

Thanks, I found out when I clipped it on the weekend, left the draws on @ 5pm, returned @ 9am and first two stolen, shrug. Went to cheesedale for an hour, returned and next two were stolen. So I pretty much lost 5 draws to some kid who hacks down trees with an axe then uses them to get draws off the wall, and smashes a few beer bottles while he's at it. Aaah Nowra.

Sounds like some wanker is amassing a great stash of stolen gear from Bomaderry Creek. I left draws on Metamorphosis at Cheesedale and went back last week to find that all but the top two had been ripped off : (

Were there any signs of how they were pinched?

Back in the old days (i.e when I was climbing there) it was local kids with a ladder stealing draws at South Central...

Those kids have grown to adult bogans now, and their second generation spawn are probably stealing the draws.

Martin thieves are lazy and cheesedale for a lazy thief is a long hop from sc. Pinching draws at cheesey o that route needs climbing skills. The slope below the anchor would rquire a big and scarey ladder to get to the draws. (Hink about footing ther ladder on that shit you walk up.

The draws past the crux were still there, which suggested to me that it was a climber who couldn't climb too hard not a local bogan with a ladder. That said, there was a stash of long cut down branches nearby that weren't there before, so they could have been 'stick-unclipped' by someone.

Given the well documented reputation of thievery in Nowra for over a decade, I am surprised that people still leave their draws on routes overnight or longer.
If you can get up the route to put them, why don't you do it again the next day/session???
IMO its more like foolishness to leave a temptation for thieving scum out of laziness than it is misfortune...

As for getting them stolen while your back is turned, well thats just unlucky..

Expensive lesson learnt i hope
