If you are on top of pitch #6 of \"Amphitheater Direct\" at Krakadouw, please get my nut which is placed in a crack. It's not a leaver nut, it's my favorite nut.

Ok so let’s get this right –

One moment it was tucked in nicely next to your gendarme, and the next it was lodged in a foreign crack?
And now you want our help setting things straight?

I guess that’s what friends are for…

KMod please don't get aggressive here - there are sensitive issues at hand that need to be handled in an understanding manner.

Sputnik you need to come to terms with the fact that your friends are not there as a substitute for pulling on your nuts. That is not to say that you should climb without protection, but rather that you should opt for more appropriate routes of experimentation that will allow for self expression without the emotional trauma that you seem to be experiencing.

Try something like Fantasy Factory at Muizenburg, where you can hone your skills in a far less commiting environment before heading for the big hills.

Happy Climbing

its all fun and games until someone loses a nut.

Seriously, trad climbers ought to stop leaving there nuts lying around.
It degrades the beauty of the rock face and spoils the challenge for the next climber as to where to place their nut.
