Bootiful Booty, I love you... 9-Feb-2011 At 9:58:13 PM Miguel75
It's finally happened. I have moved out of noobhood and into gumbydom. I'm talking about every climbers right of passage; finding and retrieving booty!

I had a good feeling as I rocked up to my local crag today; the air was crisp, the sun was shining and the mozzies were happily buzzing around; truly a magical afternoon. I was too lazy to walk down so nonchalantly set up my rope and rapped in to begin my daily crush fest. On the way down I was enjoying the view when a certain twinkle, nay a sparkle, caught my eye.

My heart beat faster. Could today be the day? Would I find that holy grail of climbing lore; booty? Yes! Yes I would! I was a pile of nerves as I approached my prey, eyes darting furiously to ensure no one else swooped in to snatch it away. (Which wasn't really an issue as I was the only one there but I'm trying to paint a picture for you, my dear friends!) I approached my prize from above and surveyed the surrounds, trying to mentally map out how I would go about removing it. I slowly rapped in, level with my prey, and set to work.

After hearing of the protracted battles others have had with booty I was a little unnerved though set to work. I was surprised how easy my booty came out. What seemed like minutes was in reality a matter of seconds, and then I held my prize aloft, marvelling in my marvelousness. I had figured it out! I had put in the effort and claimed my prize!

If anyone wants their bolt plate back let me know...
