Found BD Quick Draw at Mine

Did you forget you favourite boots at the crag? Or, did you find some quickdraw on the 4th bolt of some route?

Found a BDQD that must have been dropped on Swanlake or near to it-was halfway up in a crack under a bush. if you can't discribe it i will claim it: this is your 3 month warning, in the mean while its going to Montegu this weekend

Is it safe to climb on such a QD? If it bounced down the face might it not have collected micro-fractures? Normally I'd guess its fine unless it lands on the ground after a 10m + fall, but who knows?

I only charge R50 to dispose of such draws in an environmentally friendly manner :roll:

Ney Dark Horse, i picked it up Sunday: 3 days before your Wednesday post claiming Tuesday.

The great thing about sport climbing is you don't need absolute faith in your last piece of gear as there is always another below it thats a bit safer, I just won't use it for the first 3 draws. :bom:

Disclaimer: if you actually think like this please tell me so i can avoid climbing with/near you.
