Lost - Metolius # 8 (Purple) Cam

Good morning all

Anyone who went to Arapiles on the weekend - if you or a little birdy found a #8 Metolius cam with a purple sling - could I please have it back?? It's about halfway between a yellow and blue Camalot in size. It has green and yellow electrical tape on the trigger bar.

As best I can gather, it was left at the top of Kamikaze, probably with two opposed biners attached. I rapped down to fish out a bit of gear and my second missed it when cleaning the belay. Noooooo...

I understand the booty code of conduct, so this is more a plea than anything else. There's beers in it for you though!

cheers, Kyle

Well - it's not there today (unless someone put it back there!) Looked yesterday morning and it wasn't where I placed it. So no need for the five minute walk from the hammock in the Pines.

(Figure a six pack of Coopers, open for negotiation!)

Awww, and this was my first piece of booty too! Plus it was needed addition to my meager rack (only 3 cams so far). :-( But after seeing this post my conscience has gotten the better of me. Yeah I found it atop Kamikaze on Monday evening.

I'm back in Melbourne (Ivanhoe) studying for exams, I probably wont be out at arraps for a month or so. I wont say no to an offer of beer, but if you have any uneeded gear (extra krabs etc) then that would be cool. :)

That's awesome dude! (Long may you prosper!) The karma gods will treat you kind I hope.

I'm in Melbourne too, so I can pop around to pick it up. I'll PM you my details and we'll sort something out re pick-up cam + beer + I'll see what I can part with in gear...

cheers
Kyle

Anyone get my #10 hex out of Moby Dick? Left there sometime in 1983 I think.
Thanks.

You people need to look after your stuff better.

20 years climbing and only ever lost a hex.

my idea of a good seconder is someone who manages to retain all your stuff and then picks up all this booty that people leave around !!

That's exactly how I train mine.

If they have to hang on the rope to work on something then so be it.
If they want to climb it clean they can lead it.

Re-racking your gear at the end of each climb also helps.
