/ *Stolen" abseil rope St Govans
Originally I naturally assumed that it must have been picked up by mistake, but having spent much of the remaining weekend asking climbers on the cliff top, at the three main campsites and at the St Govans Inn whether they knew anything I am beginning to have my doubts. How can you not realise that you have walked off with a coiled 55 metre white static rope, which was lying next to my red crux rucksack while I climbed Space Cadet? Surely by Sunday anyone would have wondered why they had "gained" an extra rope?
Not happy, John
Hope it turns up John. I'm sure someone will realise. I asked around but nobody seemed to know
10 days on and no one has got in touch to say they accidentally took my rope, so I have now reported the theft to the police. I think there was a spate of thefts from the cliff tops a few years ago. Let's hope this isn't the start of another one, particularly as climbers in Pembroke frequently have no choice but to leave unattended gear at the top of the crag.
Sorry, some of our friends picked up the rope by mistake, we were asked about it at the campsite but weren't aware at the time that the other half of our group had accidentally lifted it.
Honest mistake, where are you based and we can get it back to you ?
That's great to hear. I'll message you privately with my details.
