      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Redpoint climbing shop robbed!!

Recommended Posts

"REDPOINT ROBBED – Watch-out for new gear being sold!

 

This is a note from the Owner of Redpoint….I'm letting everyone know this, just in case someone runs into someone that's selling gear that just doesn't sound right. Last night (Friday night) my shop was broken into, and everything was taken and I really do mean everything. I haven't done an actually inventory yet. But ballpark, 50 draws, 100 carabiners, 14 ropes, 4 sets of cams, 5 sets of nuts, 10 down jackets, etc etc etc etc. So please, please, keep an eye out for anything suspicious if you're buying something second hand from someone. I would appreciate it. If anyone finds out anything here is some contact information. You can either call me, 541-923-6207. Or the best bet is the local sheriff's office. Their phone number is 541-693-6911. The Sheriff in charge of the case is Gary Cima, but you can talk to anyone else there as well. I'm working on the inventory right now, and will have a pretty long list of items stolen, so you know what to be on the look out for. Thanks for all the support. Thanks, Eric"

Here are photos from that scketchy craigslist ad.

 

If this is stolen gear, let me know and I'll give you the guys name and email address for beating purposes.

if that seriously is the stolen gear (or some of it-the story is beyond fishy/bizzare--it would be more plausible if it just said "a friend gave me his stuff") a name and e-mail address is bunk...an actual address would work a lot better for beatings, and/or involvement with LEOs. I've found e-mail be-ratement to be extremely unsatisfactory and unsatisfying.

what the hell are those green things? and those spring sticht plates are ghetto, aren't those from like 20 years ago? like they were the upgrade from the hip belay?

If that is stolen gear at least law enforcement will have a lead: two feet and a pair of socks!:laf:

 

Seriously though, all that new, unused gear: sketchy-town.

who the hell still has Sticht plates?

 

Lots of people. While I have several belay devices, I prefer a Sticht Plate for glacier/alpine climbing. They work great as an autoblock for a crevasse rescue system, in addition to being a good belay or rap device.

 

The green things are bottle openers.

 

All shiny new gear, including 6 brand new belay devices, no shoes, no chalkbag (for someone supposedly getting out of climbing): sure does smell like this stuff is stolen. I wouldn't be surprised if it's been lifted from another shop, if not Redpoint. Strangely coiled rope, too.

Holy Crap! Does Osama bin Laden have to be holding this stuff before anyone follows up on this? I'm reading this in England and I can tell the stuff is nicked!

Thing is, these craigslist posts people are putting up do not match the list of gear mentioned by Redpoint as being stolen.
