Hahaha... I was feeling a bit pirate-like, or maybe Gangs of New York with that one. Festooned fixed lines have no place in LNT. It's, like, in the manual we wrote.

"Stupid is someone who can't process that taking something that doesn't belong to you is stealing."

I'm not condoning taking the rope, just saying (if he's not a troll) the OP is lazy.

So leaving your lunch in a lunch break room is littering?

Where I work, if its well past lunch, and your lunch is laying around, it gets tossed in the garbage.

Back to fixed ropes...I wouldn't condone taking one, to be sure, and, bummer someone did, but, out of sight, out of mind. Anything else is inviting trouble...

Why is everybody so eager to pick up rope, lunch and gear for trash but they pass by a soda can and used tape when they see them at the crag. So all trash is trash, right? Liberty

Havent been on for a while but nice to hear what other people think!
So on that logic any thing left by the base of a wall or on the wall is free game? In yosemite all fixed lines or ok to take or someone leaving gear at climb say Zodic where people wait in line is ok to take? I have respect for others and there stuff.
Funny how there way a fixed line in a more poplar area and that one was ok!Mine was behind a corner with the rope tucked under a flake not on a open face. Ya I was bed sick for 4 days so bad on me? Its nice to have faith in people so i can get out of work and run up and put in a few laps before dinner.Funny how my ropes new got bothered in NY,MT,CO and OR.
So yes it does come down to me leaving it there and trusting people,I learned my leson for around here!!

Hello
You don't really get it. Pie Shop is not Cookie cliff, or El Cap. Different areas, different customs on what is ok. Still think whoever took your rope is a dick, but I can totally see it happening in a place like pie shop.
Would it be ok for me to fix a line for a few days on Dinkum crack in cosumnes? I am pretty sure it would be gone within 24 hours of leaving it.
Hope you recover your rope somehow...

How long would a fixed rope last on High Exposure in the Gunks?

People that steal are assholes, but don't set yourself up.

Look at this way--now for $175 or less, you can get a new rope that you'll take better care of.

Agreed. People that leave shit hanging on the rock, sitting on the ground, or any where else are assholes as well. Pack it in, pack it out.

Little bit harsh, I've met Tom and he's a nice guy, maybe he shouldn't have left a rope up but he's definitely not an asshole.

Fair enough. I don't know Tom, I think it's inconsiderate to leave a rope up at a well traveled crag.

I think the most disappointing part of this whole thread is that pie shop is a crag and not a place, I was really hoping there was a shop devoted to pie in S. Lake Tahoe John D

It was named after a pie shop that was there but is now defunct. So, you weren't too far off.

And, yes, leaving ropes strewn up at the moderate, easy to rig crags is still idiotic.

. . . leave shit sitting on the ground? For how long? What's your time limit for me to leave a pack at the base of a trad climb, to come and pick up on the descent, before you start screaming "BOOTY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" and run off like a thief?

10 minutes? 30 seconds? two hours? overnight?

You'll find out what people's time limit is on sending you back to school to learn some respect. Dickhead.

I didn't even get the sense that was what he was talking about. A pack at the base of the route is entirely different from a fixed line left on a moderate climb for days at a time. I know, I know, the convenience and entitlement of leaving your ear buds in place and not being bothered to rig up and then take down your line argue otherwise, but I believe we all know the difference between a pack and tat in this hypothetical shell game you guys like to play.

Hmmm... Well this exact discussion was had on a previous thread, some moron like yourself tried to make the same argument. I will quote you another person's post.

So its 24 hrs "Dickhead"

Refer to this thread for more arguing.

A thief is a thief.

It apparently doesn't matter how often it's been discussed or argued here or elsewhere, some bastards never learn. If it isn't your stuff, don't touch it. Most people learn that in preschool.

No, most people learn in preschool to put their toys away, and if they left their toys sitting in a public park for a few days, they would probably be gone. The "bastards that never learn" are those that can't be bothered to put their toys away, leave their clutter out in public spaces against rules of said public space, and then whine that their stuff isn't there anymore.

OK, I'm done. In cyberspace, nobody can hear you scream.

But they can hear you in the crag parking lot if you get caught thieving.

See ya.
