Picked up a bail draw off Peer Pressure on Monday. If it's yours, describe it to me and I'll try to get it back to you.

Hoping it's still ours from Saturday! Older blue BD draw, hooked nose and wire gate on one side, 3rd from the top I believe. My friend was TR'ing it to clean, couldn't get it on the way up and... forgot on the way down.

I climb at BKB, or let me know if I can pick it up from you sometime.

Ha ha, wasn't my draw, but I should try to get people to bail on my old gear as excuse for upgrading..

Didn't leave a bail draw but I put new steel biners on the anchors the other day. Though why bail on a whole draw, why not just a biner?

Thanks for that Andrew, I noticed those. It wasn't a bailing situation, it was a forgetful climber on TR situation..

Oh good they are still there? I was concerned because the pins wouldn't fit because the links were just a bit too large. I got sick of getting to the top and having to deal with that locker always being locked and having that old d-Binet there. Figured I'd do my part and do some maintenance. And I was just talking about people bailing on draws in general, not directed at you Dan. though I did try to clean peer pressure while lowering, and it sucks,get the big swing into the trees.

far easier and safer to just TR it. even if you have to go bolt to bolt while tired it is WAY easier. I've seen multiple people slam the trees and then back into the rock. you can easily wrecking ball someone walking at the bottom too.
Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
