Have a closer look at "someone else's" rack next time you're out with them. Trust, but verify.

Nothing brings out feelings of paranoia, protectiveness, pride and envy quite like dealing with trad gear!

Finding ALOT of gear IS rubbish - we climbed something like 19 pitches on the tuesday and found 2 cams, 2 hexes together on a belay, 5 assorted nuts, a few old biners together on a ledge. It didnt seem like a whole lot considering the ground we covered that day but it was fun all the same.

Tee hee - yes the thought did cross my mind.

Even if a lot of gear was left behind, you wouldn't know on which routes to start. And whilst you are climbing a bunch of routes unsuccessfully looking for gear, the routes that do have gear stuck in them are being climbed by someone else who is simply fortunate to stumble upon it before you even know anything about it.

What some dirtbag climber should do is advertise their services where they go and retrieve your stuck gear for half the retail price of the piece (payment only required if the salvage operation is successful).

Come to think of it if anyone has some stuck gear at Arapiles they can call Simey's Stuck Nut & Cam Removalists - just PM me the details.
