DRAW THIEF!

We just had draws stolen off of this route as well as Spew. Whoever it is, they must work quickly. We figured we would just leave them up overnight, returned the next afternoon, and they were gone. From experience, we never leave draws on the first bolt, so whoever it is they are either a competent climber or stick clipping their way up. My friend had just bought a nice new set of the Black Diamond FreeWire draws too. Luckily ours on Spew were old but still! Nobody leave your draws on this wall! REWARD for anyone that comes up with who may have the draws! Jul 15, 2013
