I think this horse has been beaten to death, but it deserves a few more kicks. But I'm against kicking real horses. Or being kicked by them.

Come to think of it, Frank, you may have identified the real culprit.

They know how to booty cams? Or just kick?

The best booty is from out of towners who are too cool to communicate, it's like a gift from the climbing gods.

I would count my blessings your rope wasn’t removed as well.

Also: The word “stole” in the post title is incorrect.

This has nothing to do with the “integrity of the climbing community” - it is a long standing tradition in climbing that gear left behind in situations like these is no longer yours. You should re-evaluate your sense of entitlement - not the nature of climbers - and rejoice in being able to participate directly in the Booty Circle of Life.

Stuck gear can happen - it doesn’t make you a baby. Sadly I can’t say the same about your long-winded complaint about losing a 15-year old cam.

Apparently you did not read the whole whine.  It’s an 18 year old cam.  That makes it sentimental.

As someone else pointed out, there was no reasonable expectation on Buck's part that the second party was paying any attention to what his partner was doing with respect to the pro. For all they knew, they were able to retrieve a nut that had been there for months or years.

Is Marc a lawyer? Can we steal his cam?
