/ Theft from The works dry tooling crag.! Beware!
This not the first time draws have been taken from routes here.
Please don't take insitu draws! they have been left for a purpose.
I was just looking up this crag today! Fother Muckers
why were your draws in bloodline? It should be fully equipped with dmm draws? Dont tell me these are gone now?!
First two of bloodline got nicked and were replaced with another 2 draws ... which have now been nicked again.
Everything else is still there.
They've obviously just taken what was in reach...scumbags!
I have 2 draws I took out of the Time and a Half anchor on Wednesday, the way they were linked together I thought was an invite for trouble as the gates were cross loading. Let me know what to do with them.
There was none in Bloodline though? I purposely didn't equip the first 2 bolts on that as my draws were taken from them from the deck. I had left a couple of wire gates in there also which worked but they are also gone.
When you in next?
Sorry to hear this, will defo be more vigilant. I left some of mine but they were still there when i returned. See you have done The Fang in the other quarry, is it just the start thats tricky?
Hi Paddy, Thanks for replying.
The draws from 'time and a half' are my mates. I'm sure he will be happy to get them back.
I work in 'The Epicentre' Perhaps you could drop them in? (in in today, sat, sun, mon and tues)
Alternatively i'll be at the Works saturday evening, with a generator and 500w lights, with Adam Hocking and Matt Pycroft (hot aches) who is keen to take some shots.
Yeah, its a pity stuff is disappearing, hopefully no one will go to the trouble of taking a spanner to the insitu draws!!
The Fang is a great route, varied and good quality throughout, a very steep start gives way to some balancy moves to gain the groove to the top. The start isn't really technical and the moves are short, its just steep, the move over the short horizontal roof is probably the crux, it can be done without a fig4 but is probably easiest with?! The section after the roof to the groove is surprisingly tricky and more techy than it looks from the deck, once in the groove its steady to the top. I reckon its one of the best routes in the Works...
Other Pete (Epicenter), I'll try and duck in after work tomorrow, what time you heading in?
will be up there today and tomorrow if anyone is about?
