  1. Looking for an expedition weight, down filled parka— something like the Absolute Zero by Mountain Hardwear or the Feathered Friends Rock and Ice Parka or the Patagonia VII parka. Please reply on cascadeclimbers or ericbeecroft1@hotmail.com. Replying to Both would be best. will consider used parkas ( ie a Denali attempt, one season in Himalayas Or Karakoram or Sierra etc - if the parka is in quite good condition. ) Please email me with a price, photographs, and way to contact you.
  2. FS: vintage but still in great shape, Osprey Kestrel Pro daypack with Dyneeema/ Spectra cloth woven thru black nylon pack sack. Nearly indestructible..a simple but technical daypack. They don’t make them like this anymore. MADE IN COLORADO,! Great for all day alpine hikes, mountaineering lite, canyoneering, sport climbing, skiing, heavy photography loads, Perfect for traveling!! either as your carry on or, if you can go light, your entire luggage. What makes this daypack different from others on the market- a REAL set of padded shoulder straps and a REAL full size , marked L(arge) removable waistbelt —allows you to carry heavier loads with ease. It has a small top pocket with key holder inside. It’s older, so none of the fancy extra stuff like water bladder systems, or extra stretchy fabric or a zillion little pockets.Just a 100% hardcore daypack. Why selling it? I have a degenerative back disability and it means my serious hiking days are over. Letting it go for $55 plus $25 for UPS ground shipping w/ insurance and tracking. Don’t want to mess with eBay or PayPal. CONUS ONLY !! Have had bad experiences with PayPal. I have 100% positive eBay feedback and have been member of eBay since 2003. Payment only though Western Union. I’ve bought and sold many things on Cascade Climbers. Email me: ericbeecroft1@hotmail.com and I’ll email you the payment address to send the money order to, and you send me the address you want the pack shipped to. I will ship within one day of receiving the Western Union money order. I’m totally legit; a professional photographer (www.ericbeecroft.com) and director of a prestigious international photo workshop-Foundry Photojournalism Workshops.I can send references if needed. These packs in this condition are almost impossible to find. Pack does have some hard water spots on inside of pack sack and the drawcord to close the sack has frayed, but nothing major. No returns, no refunds what you see is what you get— it is an amazing, rare bombproof daypack for $55.
  3. EXPED LW lightweight 7 ( length) down filled air mattress. $100.00 US paypal or western union only. Normally retails $175-$250 or so. Only used maybe seven nights, in a tent, or on a tarp, or back of an SUV. Built-in small hand pump to inflate anywhere. -Rolls super small and tight, but unrolls wide and long enough for comfortable sleep in any terrain and weather, especially winter. -Inflates to between two and three inches of down loft; baffles keep down in a separate chambers so it won’t migrate around the pad. -Has enough air chambers so you don’t roll off the mat. - Expands wide and long when fully inflated. -Is in perfect condition; used maybe seven times- ALL CAR CAMPING - on a tarp or in a tent OR SUV. -I purchased two years ago so I could keep backpacking and camping with a serious back injury but i just got way too busy to use it. Works amazing, like sleeping on a down mattress. In the wilderness. Final cost : $100 for pad and $20 shipping. &120.00 TOTAL. Payment: PayPal or Westen Union ONLY. PayPal: send money to : sharonbeecroft@gmail.com Shipping is $20 UPS ground . INCLUDES TRACKING AND INSURANCE. CONUS ONLY. Payment required before I Ship. I am the founder and director of Foundry Photojournalism Workshop, a decade plus international organization , and count many National Geographic photographers, Pulitzer Prize photography winners and New York time photographers as close friends. I have many who can vouch for my integrity- you pay for the pad, you will get it ASAP. As to why I haven’t been on Cascade Clinbers website in a long time; I’ve been working in the States and overseas, esp India, Vietnam, Turkey, Bosnia, Ecuador, Mexico, Bali, Romania- Photographing stories , teaching photography to high school students, and teaching history and leading international trips.
