  1. Howdy!
    Its time to cull some more trad gear in preparation for some more fly fishing stuff. 
    For sale is a pretty darn nice trad rack and extras, like a haul bag, belay seat and Rock exotica tools.
    All the hardware is in excellent shape and has been stored in the cool and dark, stable temp room. 
    As usual any webbing/slings must be inspected and replaced if it looks dubious or is pretty old.
    Asking $650.00 firm for everything.
    No parting out, no trades, no shipping.
    Local, face to face, cash. 
    I am in Tacoma


    BD and Wild Country cams.
    Triple sets, thin hands to wide hands.
    Only one #4



    TCUs: Metolius, BD, Wild Country, and Alien,
    great shape, no damage. 




    Stoppers and tiny wireds
    Many brands, the right clump of tiny ones were used for aid.

  2. Howdy,
    Selling off a couple of old bit in storage. Both are unused (climbing) condition, however the haul bag has been used as a car luggage holder and lastly, a place to store my fly rods in tubes.

    The Pika belay seat is in perf condition, just dusty and about 10 years old, give or take a year or five.

    Asking $100.00 for the pair, firm and local (Tacoma) only. Shipping not preferred, but...

    Please feel free to as Q's.







  3. Going over some more items I decided to add to what I had for sale. I am offering up a bunch of older and newer cams (Used but in very solid shape, non of these have taken big falls and those that have, were small and non destructive.)

    The "small" rack includes:


    20 mixed RP,HB,and some BD brass, alum, and SS wireds

    2 old tech friends roughly #.5 and #1

    Metolius TCU #0, #3, #4

    Metolius FCU #3

    Older Camalots #1-#4 with the #2 being a first gen in great shape.

    Wild Country Rigid Friend #2.5


    $300.00 for the set above, pictured below.






    The big Rack is:

    Two #5 Camalots

    One #4.5 Camalot

    Two Trango (Mountain Hardware) Big Bros in #2 and a #4


    I would like to sell this rack FOR $300.00


    Buy the whole kit together for $475.00





    No other splitting will be considered, semi firm on prices, but try me.

    Local sales Tacoma and vicinity, Cash or Paypal, Face to Face preferred.

  4. Hand drilling brings back some great memories..bang, twist, bang, twist...puff, puff, bang, twist... Much more satisfying and karmically correct than a power drill, though I have used both.

    Just sold my Hurricane, loved it, a sexy piece of debauchery it was. I still have my pika drill buried some place. I can look for it if yer desperate.

    Nothing more satisfying than a fresh drilled line.




  5. Could really just chop it and use the money for something more ethical? Starving kids, ravaged watersheds, native fish, innercity donations to help illiteracy programs or poverty,or Animal rescue.

    Redamaging a fragile ecosystem is, for me the furthest need from my mind.



  6. Climbing is no longer the vanguard of environmentalism; it's becoming the vanguard of narcissism.

    This sums it up perfectly.


    But people want to argue over trees and bolts.

    We waste an immense amount of resources just living. I want people to climb and have fun but make sure to mitigate as much damage and waste as you can to allow for the next (if there is) generation.



    Still haven't seen a report about you sending free Numbah10 on lead on gear. Until then, shut the fuck up.

    You really are a brilliant one.


    This really is an entertaining thread. Thanks for helping demystify climbing in the new millenium ;)

  7. Contrary to your intended statement, this picture actually applies to you. Raindawg is talking shit, which he can't back up with his climbing ability.



    What amazes me is that you equate climbing ability with the ability to voice your opinion or have a say on a matter.


    In this case then...only people with wealth have a say, only famous people have a say, and finally only corruption is allowed to speak?


    Sorry state of affairs if this is how you perceive this topic and other people.



  8. I think you are blowing this wayyyyy out of proportion. Do you do route maintenance? I don't think you realize how much work goes on at index for the greater good of climbing . I could give a shit about some trees or who cuts them .
