I know there is another thread but I cannot find it. Please post trophy pics of the Garbage you haul out of canyons.
This was from Spry Canyon, 2/21/2015 with Cameron and Mark
I've done well in Spry. One trip yielded nearly 100' of brand-new 1" tubular(so new I re-used it) and half a dozen rap rings. I think the party ahead of us must have been blind ... they rigged all sorts of alternative anchors in odd places.
Makeshift rope bag found in Wilson canyon.
Tom, that wasn't even all of it...we had a haul in our bags as well.
I found 80' of unused, 1" black webbing all daiseyed up in heaps. Not really garbage, more of a treasure.
I've got a big clump of junk webbing I'll take a picture of later. Prob 50+/- of redundant, manky webbing from various canyons. The north wash usually has a good yield of junk webbing.
Here's a previous related thread:
Maybe some merging can take place?
There's a difference between replacing old webbing with fresh new webbing and just removing redundant, alternative, unnecessary webbing. Tom, a lot of that looks fairly new, so I am assuming the spry descendents think more is better.
A roll of webbing I packed out of a canyon (and this is only a little bit of it). Since it is tightly rolled, it is actually much longer than it appears in the photo. I used my smart phone for scale.
Is that the seatbelt stuff you found at powell?
Yes. Still want it? Just PM me your address.
Near Lake Mead/Hoover Dam: Motorcycle Canyon, about 100' of 1/8" galvanized cable. I realize the locals are probably so used to having massive amounts of trash in their canyons that they do not even notice...
I don't understand your question, Mike, if it is a question.
I also don't keep track of why the webbing is replaced in each instance, although with me, I replace colored webbing with grey or black, as a matter of course, when the rigging is not very good. In Spry, the rigging is often not very good.
Looks like we've found a solution for durable anchors...
No question. I will always cut away old worn out webbing that looks dangerous to me. However, sometimes I am lazy and do not always clean up unnecessary webbing. Sometimes multiple anchors exist. Sometimes it is just 3, 4, or more on the same anchor that people keep adding to. Sometimes it looks like a rappel, but is just a downclimb. If I think of this thread, it makes me a better canyon custodian because I think about the cool pic of tons of webbing I could take.
Yikes. That doesn't look fun to pack out. :-O
We did not have much gear, but it pretty much filled my Kolob pack. We had quite an adventure getting out, wandering around in the desert mountains, at night... I like to think that the good karma of pulling out the cable contributed to our eventual success.
Locals redefining static rope?
Nice haul! I know where there's some unsightly mining artifacts...

Do you think it is recent or old? I know in some areas of Utah there are cables such as that on certain routes, but they are very old. The ones on parts of Timpanogos are presumably a few decades old, but some of the ones in Canyonlands are older than that. I know that some in the canyons west of me are much newer (and so are the ladders).
