Topic - Thefts of gear on A55 Crags

rockcat - on 01 Jun 2012
There has been a recent spate of thefts of lower-offs from the A55 Crags in North Wales which is ongoing. Below is a comprehensive list of thefts which we are aware of to date. Lets be clear that these people are thieves and whoever is doing it is stealing from those who contributed to the bolt fund and in many cases individuals who have bought the gear themselves. They are stealing from the climbing community and providing needless work to those who look after these crags in replacing the gear. If anyone is seen stealing or interfering with gear then please challenge them in a robust manner and contact me through UKC. Thanks
