It seems that leaving draws on projects is becoming unsafe in our climbing community.

On Saturday at the Boven Rock rally I put draws on Condor (28) and returned in the afternoon to give the route another burn only to sadly discover the first draw had been stolen.

No one can claim it was an accident as I have petal spirit quick draws (which are very common draws) and so have sewed an orange ribbon on all my draws with my name written on the ribbon.

So whoever has taken my draw had better cut that orange ribbon off my draw before using it because if I see you at the crags with my labeled draw I will be incomparable less tolerant and lenient than Andrew was towards Hano. There will be blood and violence.

If anyone who was at the Rock Rally saw someone on Condor, please let me know.

Unfortunately not. :(
Apparently someone saw the dog-bone with the carabiners removed at the base of the crag on Sunday.

Clearly it is not somebody that can climb Condor.

Good practice to never leave the first draw in - they're the ones that usually get nicked. Sorry for your loss though - its a damn shame that you cannot leave gear in :(

Looks like the perma biners on the popular moderate routes have also been taken.
The biners are missing on Little bonsai and Endless bj all that are left are the dogbones and maillons
Looks like the climbers are going to get a worse reputation if this is the current trend.

Amazing...that we(me too) somehow imagine climbers to be morally above non-climbers & that climbing somehow filters out(perhaps corrects) dishonest persons & immoral conduct.

...pop!...(bubble bursting)

A proper PK as offered by David Wade will have filtering, cleansing & correcting properties.
