Lost  a .75, nut, sling and two biners on Outside corner yesterday, June 26.  I went back today to retrieve the gear and it was gone.  Cold beer and good karma in return for the cam.  The nut, sling and biner were dropped from a distance... FWIW, I wouldn't use them.

We are all way too busy free soloing Outside Corner and bolting cracks in LCC to go looking for lost gear.  Haven't you seen the other thread on that subject?

Out of curiosity, why wouldn't you use the nut, sling or 'biner? Just because they were dropped?

Especially the sling (microfractured)

What cracks are bolted? Asking for a friend.

All of them eventually if I get my way.

Mexican Crack just got the lower part bolted. And the top half of Satans just got a few in it too. Half a Finger just got fully bolted. And Schoolroom just got all bolted belays. The Green A has a bolt every 8 feet or so.I heard there's more coming soon.

'bout fucking time! I'm tired of carrying heavy packs around... Hopefully the bolts go back in on the Coffin too, I bet you could re-use the old holes.

Wait, is this for real?! Is there a specific person or group doing this, or is a trend that people are jumping on?

Here, read through this old thread and catch up on some historical context:

Yeah, there is one person doing this. When you find this mysterious bolter let me know so I can give this person more bolts.

How recent is this? I was just on satans corner a few weeks ago. No bolts besides the anchors that were of course already there.

It happened last Friday.  It's great.  All you need now is 6 quick draws and two long slings.  In this heat liquid chalk helps as well.

Jeez for a sec I thought you meant 8 total for the whole route but I see you mean 8 for the upper section, good to see whoever's bolting is making the route safe and not runout. I hope they come back and do the bottom section too, I've always found that crack to be insecure and I don't like letting go of the jams for more than a couple seconds, works fine to clip bolts but not so much to fiddle with gear.

I'd like to climb a giant bolt with bolts bolted on it and avoid this rock nastiness
