All the name calling is immature, yes even the Great Werner. Come on Werner, I've looked up to you since the I first saw Yosemite Climber. You could do better than calling someone with whom you disagree a faggot, don'tcha think??.

Whether you like what Granite is saying or not, it is unrealistic to believe that his opinion doesn't exist amongst many people who followed the WoS saga from the beginning.

On the other hand, my impression has always been that Shipoopi is a stand up guy. I've had this impression for years, and I truly hope he gets his stuff back. I also hope the person responsible for *stealing* his stuff gets busted.

What a new tone to your posts granite big time back peddling coming and ill find that thread.
I was shocked when I saw it as I've spent some time here and never had I seen such bs.

This is really crazy! Do I have it right that you think you saw me bump a Steve Schneider thread right BEFORE Steve posted his stolen ropes thread?

Met SS this summer up at Donner. He and a buddy retrieved my anchor after asking to use my top rope. Silver was there. BSd a bit got some good beta. Was good day.

One of things I really enjoy about climbing is meeting folks who are just out there enjoying it. In our sport even the well known folks tend to be pretty cool.

Sad when someone decides to put a monkey-wrench in the machinery with a bunch of judgmental douchebaggery or worse.

Locker, no one has sh#t on my ropes, and I plan to keep it that way.

When DMT posted his theory that this was a vigilante taking revenge on Steve, my reaction was no way. But thinking about it more, I think it's more possible then I first thought I still think the ropes were probably put in the trash by someone who thought they were abandoned, but anything is possible. The only way to know would be to find the person who took them.

That being said, dropping all the low ropes and leaving something up high is just straight up DICK MOVE!

Agreed on that. Not the move of somebody protesting fixed lines left for a long time (unless it started to rain or circumstances otherwise dictated in the moment.

Leaving a line up there could have been a pointed jab to draw attention, or add hassle, bolstering the vendetta possibility.

Peace

"Locker, no one has sh#t on my ropes, and I plan to keep it that way."...

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE post at least ONE photo of you actually CLIMBING and I will believe that you are for real...

Otherwise it ain't happening...

LOL!!!...



EDITED:

"Locker, no one has sh#t on my ropes"...

Any chance those ropes are actually STEVEs???...

Revenge for WOS??

If folks can't fathom that fired up driven young kids do dumb things and usually grow up eventually...well they themselves are probably dumb kids still.

Well, here it is the day after. it looks like the ropes were taken after 11/16 or 11/17, and before 11/25. so, looks unlikely that i will never get these ropes back, and the material cost is not that big a deal, just my dismay at having my equipment taken. i'd just like to know what happened, what is going on here. since i was actively searching for partners for this route on this forum, i think that kind of identifies the ropes as mine, so i don't see why i should be leaving a note on the rock identifying mine. i was as active on this route as i could be, and redirected the rope straight down, off the dawn wall AND the real nose so they would not be in anybody's way. if anybody has a problem with my fixed lines, first of all, i'm sorry about that, but i hope somebody can contact me directly so i have a chance to respond and act on it. ss

Oh, I'll bring it back up, KLK. Just you wait.

On this topic: This is bigwall? You guys can have it.

If only we could strip the Ego and Douche from the climbing mentality. The rest of it is glorious.

Dial up the Mandingo. I'm out.

Is the train wreck virus infectious? It seems to be. Maybe I better make myself scarce before I catch it.

I'm just giving an honest reaction here..

As an outsider reading this thread, I'm going to have to take Graniteclimber's side. He/she may be a bit hyper about it, but in general I think he/she has a point.

Regardless, the opening post struck me as a failed attempt of being a collected man's account for his issues. It really had more of a pathetic, over-emotional nature to it.

I take this from the talking about clues, prosecution, culprits, profiles, young foreign males, bla bla bla..

WTF? It's a couple of old ropes, that has been left to foul the side of a mountain for months, that now are missing. 500$ claim is a joke.

Some dumb kids probably took them.

That said, I think it's wrong to mess with other people's stuff, no matter of circumstances. Hope you get them back.

That being the value of the ropes is a joke but taking a few days to drive up from oakland to take them down is probably $500 worth of wasted time and gas, not to mention that now he has to waste even more time and gas getting the rope that wasn't taken down

interesting to see how these incidents play out based on who is involved. if joe smoe came on the taco and posted,

"REWARD OFFERED To anybody that gives information leading to the arrest and prosecution of said culprit, I will pay them a reward of $100.",

there would be sh#t slinging of enormous proportions at the OP by the same people who stand by Steve now.

"If you return my ropes to me, or offer me a satisfactory monetary compensation, AND a personal apology to me, then i promise to forgive you and that will be the end of it. No rangers, no prosecution, no big deal."

holy f*#king ego!

I witness this same BS everywhere, all the time.

David Beckham can get away with wearing a skirt and make-up, he'll still be considered a super manly soccer hero, because he scored so many goals for England in the past.

In fact, when he goes against the norm, it raises him even further for having the guts to do so, it makes him untouchable.

But when a regular Joe puts on a skirt and makeup. He gets spat on and called a faggot by the same people that worship Beckham.

It's a crazy world.
