Just a heads up, climbed Little Dutch Boy and left our gear stashed under the rocks in the usual spot. Wasn't long before a group of about 5 - 6 young colored school kids arrived and proceeded to go through our gear, unfortunately whilst we were a few pitches up the route. They legged it when we started shouting at them and they disappeared, presumably back down to the farmworkers houses just above the main road.
So, it's now evident they are aware that bags are left unattended and they will be back. I suggest moving your gear to a more secure position where only a climber can retrieve it. It would seem the culprits are farm laborers kids and are known.
