Wax my Gun and have some Fun

Post by justin »

A long time ago, I put 4 maillons on the lower offs of Wax my Gun and have some Fun at Supertubes, Bad Kloof, Montagu.

2 of the 4 maillons are gone. Presumably stolen by a climber (I'm going to put it down to stupidity and ignorance).

That's a shame. A while ago I saw some newbies top roping through the anchors at Sloth. I told them to use their quickdraws. But was confidently told by someone I have never seen before climbing in Cape Town that he believed that the rope wearing through the anchors is not a thing. When teaching someone to climb can we also teach them a little bit about ethics?

:shock:

This seems more an act of malice than naivety.
