Fixed Gear at Crags
Rock climbing is difficult and sometimes climbers leave gear in situ at the crags. Quickdraws can often be seen hanging on difficult routes. Taking the quickdraws off the routes is considered stealing and not good behavior. Recently, a climber was caught taking draws off a route at Smith Rock. The climbers who owned the draws approached him and got the draws back through a non-violent and calm interaction. Check out the calm and sensible actions that the climbers took when dealing with confrontation.
