Maybe i've just hiked the wrong mountains but every conversation i've had with someone on a 14er has been polite as if we're all in the same boat- struggling for air and thankful for the back yard we have up here...i can't believe that gear gets stolen on a regular basis- that blows me away. I was up on Massive this week and passed an abandoned tarp and just left it alone...figured somebody was coming back for it..thought that was standard practice
You may need to go into the archives and read the Mountain Pirates thread. That'll shiver your timbers about leaving gear!
