Please do not take the biners from the fixed chains or anchors. They are left there for everyone's convenience. In some situations, the fixed biners are helpful for cleaning the steep routes. They are not bail biners.

On Monday May 5th my group had an accident that ended in an injury that forced me to leave 6 black diamond quick draws (orange rope-end, silver bolt-end, short dogbone) as I helped carry the injured person out. By the time I was able to head back down there the draws were gone. I know this is a long shot but if anyone happened to pick up my draws, I'd love to have them back. They were on Cry Me a River on the left side of the crag. I had all of the draws up and the anchors. Hook me up with my draws and I'll owe you a pizza and beer for sure.
