How many people on this thread have completed a route on el cap?

How many people on this thread have paid taxes for the purchase, upkeep and maintenance of Yosemite?

In other words....you don't own it, Bud.

Silver,

Did I sleep
With ur girlfriend BITD?

You leg humping psycho,

Steve and I r great friends and he works for me, so go F yourself shite bird.

And sure send me a 100 bucks stalker boy.

Edit, I'm truly concern for SS and his rant, really seems absurd.
Guys like Silver and Cragman just make me nervous.

There's no reason to take personal offense or to get paranoid. The ropes probably looked like abandoned junk and could not possibly have any value to anyone else. Someone was just cleaning the sh#t off El Cap and that's to be praised.

Maybe someone is out to get Mr Sneider or was really pissed about the lines being fixed, but I doubt it. Why the topmost rope wasn't taken, I wonder if someone was bailing or rapping a nearby route that joined with this one, and took down the lower ropes but didn't want to go up to get the last one? That's my guess.

I guess I just don't like the OP approach of what is clearly not a slam dunk situation being described as a federal crime, with a reward offered (oh, and "guilty"....we don't need to bother with courts and such), with discussion of attacks on the "perps".

You do wonder if Steve would have been so forthcoming in his confession of past sins, if the victims had recently posted their consideration that it was a felony and offered a reward.

Steve seems to have a non-understanding of how Karma works. He is willing to bathe in the nurturing forgiveness of others, but is not willing to extend that same spirit to other souls, at least in principle.

I like old sayings because they are so true...
This is a really great one for this thread.

If you don't have something nice to say, don't say it.

Plus the purpose of anger is to, protect, defend, and fix problems. Now the anger being expressed on this thread, which is all about beating up a person into a pulp, with no way to appease, correct the situation except by completely dominating your foe. When there is actually nothing at risks beyond people's egoes and ideas. You are just giving yourself a heart attack.

Man, when you are on your death bed, is this B.S. going to be on your mind? If not, then please go do something that would matter, go do the stuff that will bother you when breathing your last breath. The stuff that dying people say that they should have done. Seriously, don't waste your life. Live Bigger than this shiest. Stop wasting your energy here. There is nothing to see, move on.

Is this really the same person who posted earlier in this thread? The same one who called me so many not so "nice" names?

Yes, but to be fair, if I followed the rules and sayings I've recommended to other people, I'd be rich and famous now.

no, you wouldn't be rich. For the obvious reasons.
and you're quickly becoming infamous in this community.

SS:
What i would really like to just happen is to have my ropes returned to me, without all the rangers getting involved.
...
The culprit is guilty of stealing $500 worth of rope in a federal park, which i believe is like a full on felony.
Steve makes a statement of intent, and another of fact.
He retracted his reward "offer" as Steve originally meant it in jest, or perhaps pique.

My synopsis
SS left ropes on a tough new route he was working on the Nose.
3 of them were removed by someone unknown except it wasn't the Rangers.
By some standards of The Valley the ropes hadn't been up there particularly long.
from gc:
You left TRASH up on the wall for a month or more and someone removed it.
Are you rich enough to call 2 climbing ropes trash?
Lots of climbers leave ropes up longer than a month.....for at least a dozen good reasons.
SS wants his ropes back.
Reasonable.
SS has involved the Rangers to check that they hadn't removed them.
SS apologized publicly and directly to the offended parties about his WOS silliness.
SS is a helluva better climber than 9/10 of the people on this thread (irrelevant), especially including me.
SS is a helluva nice guy and is always contributing to the climbing community.

why do you have such a burr up your arse about Steve wanting his ropes back?
WHO the hell are you?

You would have benefited from reading the thread before posting.

He lost 3 ropes, not 2. They were static lines, not "climbing ropes."

Also, there's new ropes, used ropes and used up, worn-out mank ropes. From Steve's description of his ropes, these were used up worn-out mank ropes, and yes I would call them trash ropes.

These are ropes that if I had cleaned them, I would not keep for my own use. I would throw them in the dumpster. I would do this even if I did not have the money to buy new ones.

Fred, this was covered already. Some of your other questions are also covered. If you read the two threads and still have questions, then ask.

Do u guys don't have a life?

Steve is one of my long time friends and hero's, why are you looking for drama?

It's just old school banter.

Locker, Silver and all u guys are clue less as to my human nature.

I don't know or have I ever talked to you or do u have any clue about anything as far as myself or Valley history or the life of two climber who have dedicated their lives to climbing.

Silver attacks me any chance he gets it's weird stalker like and guys like him scare me.

So F off really, have U guys notice how many top climber no longer post here?

It's always the same old crowd making something out of nothing.

I repeat,

I jugged and rapped these ropes. They are old/stiff caving ropes, and a bit herky jerky on rappel, but they are emphatically knott junk, and have plenty of life left in them for the exact purpose they were being used for - fixing pitches to jug and rap on.

First:

Shut Up! ... Damn fools, bunch of wankers talking sh#t while I bet most have done their share of pooping up their lives, never had the balls to clean it up like Steve.

Then:

I did not call you names. I simply did no agree with you.

I've been thinking this over, and I now think that there is more of chance that they were taken by someone with malicious intent then I thought earlier. This based on Ride On's second post that he later deleted. I haven't been to the Valley in months and did not know that you were working this project with Steve. I thought it was weird all quickly you jumped on that and outright LIED about how he had the same IP address. It's pretty clear that you pissed people up there, Pete. Also, a lot of people don't like you for all kinds of reasons: stalking women (allegedly) throwing pigs of the rock, you name it. You've been thrown off other forums for this. I'll never forget how you offended a woman so much that she publicly accused you here of giving her an STD. There is much more motive for this to be a theft made out of spite.

Or since you are such an unscrupulous liar, maybe you took them Pete? I don't think you did, but I think you'd be capable of it.

10/11/12 ROPES RECOVERED. Two days ago i was contacted by the party that removed my ropes. They were NOT STOLEN as i thought, but were part of a misguided attempt to clean up what they perceived as garbage. The party intends to get my ropes back to me. i am happy about that, and especially glad to know that my ropes were not poached. The party said if i had just left a note, they would have left my lines alone. ss
