really????? you beg for your cam back, and then throw this out there? i hate to be a dick (wait, that isn't true, i kind of like being a dick sometimes....) but there is no way somebody is going to read your post and actually want to give your cam back.

Coffee after freezing our asses off near James Peak.
Was the cam stuck? I didn't quite get why it was left.

I have a stuck #4 Camelot on a climb that I will never tell any of you about! I alone shall reclaim it! Bru ha ha ha!

Just wanted to put that out there.

I have a #4 camalot. Please describe.

Also, I wish I were a classic boulder d bag. Any place that stirs so much hate from haters must be awesome.

best thing about boulder is all you have to do is be seen there to be considered a douchebag

Wow. Very funny. I am pleasantly surprised how this got jumped on. I lived in boulder and fort fun for almost twenty years, and climbed in the area quite a bit, the kind of d bags behind us were a couple of well supplied dipsticks with tons of shiny new stuff and no clue how to use it, as well as asking my partner why he was taking the rope apart before our climb....
Anyway I am really sorry this bothered some people so much. I am actually not a hater, just kind of tired of seeing these types on the rock. I think u guys who have spent some time in eldo know the type I am talking about.

Again. Sorry I ruffled some feathers, I honestly did not think anyone on this site would be offended by that...

Exactly what I thought. What does "taking the rope apart" mean? I've never heard that terminology before.

That is what the fellows behind us asked my partner when he was flaking out the rope.

When I heard they asked why were we taking the rope apart I knew they were d bags. As it turns out they were 2nd year at CU. I learned this on our descent, then we saw them starting the second pitch.

I thought that if I used their wording, people would have figured out that these were not the kind of climbers that most of mountain project people would side with.

I think any of the responders of this post, had they been in my shoes would feel the same...

As for the question on why or how did The cam get there, my partner placed it at the belay, I passed it to lead the next pitch, he was unable to remove it. I took a good friend who isn't very experienced on the climb because he wanted to lead a couple of pitches for his third trad experience.

People that want to learn to climb and take initiative to do so are all D-bags. Especially if they happen to reside in/around Boulder. And if their parents happen to have money, Dog help them.

Or if they themselves happen to have money but haven't gotten out yet to put scratches on their shiny new gear. What a bunch of d-bags :)
