  1. SOLD, SORRY FOLKS I've got a pair of Nomics that I never really used much and won't be using for the foreseeable future – I'd like to get them a new home. They're in great shape – Ice picks have been filed only a little (see the silver on pictures #3 and #5, in particular), the shafts have only a few surface nicks, and the bottom grip/spike area is in fantastic shape. I'll ship these with the rubber tips that come new with them from Petzl and the tools to swap out the picks or fit a hammer onto the head. Price is $330 + $20 shipping for the pair. Local San Francisco/Oakland area people can save on the shipping and arrange a local swap. I've got Venmo and PayPal. Other payment methods may be amenable. Contact me via PM. SOLD, SORRY FOLKS
  2. I have a like-new Petzl Quark with the Hammer (removable) I bought for parts but no longer need. The pick is perfect without any nicks and the shaft still has the factory glittery shine to the metal. I'd like to get $160 + 20 shipping. Local San Francisco area people can save on shipping and arrange a local swap. I've got Venmo and PayPal; other payment methods may be amenable. Reach out to me via PM.
  3. SOLD I've got a North Face VE 25 for sale. Might as well be brand new – never set up even in the yard (guy lines still have factory knots). Health reasons are taking me away from Alaska for the foreseeable future, so I never got to use this tent. This is the current/recently updated black and gold style – see full details at https://www.thenorthface.com/shop/ve-25-ca8e?variationId=C8T SOLD Tent retails for $669. I'd like to get $380 + $20 shipping (40% off, no tax). Local San Francisco/Oakland area people can save on the shipping and arrange a local swap. I've got Venmo and PayPal set up. Other payment methods may be amenable. Contact me via PM.A few pictures of the tent on my floor. SOLD SOLD
  4. Colder weather is returning! $80 shipped.
  5. Cold weather is coming! $80 shipped!
  6. Have come to the conclusion that super gaitor style boots just aren't for me. Boots are in solid shape - the laces are in great shape, the upper has no holes/tears/repairs, while the outsoles have some signs of use. The tread has some wear on the outside, but the inner lugs still look fresh from the factory. Size EU41/USM8/UK7. Price is $225 shipped within the CONUS via USPS Priority with tracking, via PayPal. Folks outside the Continental US subject to extra shipping charges - I'm reasonable so just contact me.
  7. Bump. How about $90 shipped anywhere in the US?

  10. I bought this jacket awhile back and took the tags off, but never wore it. Basically New With Tags. I have the tags, and they will be included, but they aren't attached if that's important to you. Note how clean the sleeve pocket is - it's still crisp, laminated from the factory. $100 shipped (PayPal) via USPS Priority (1-3 days) with tracking. Best way to get my attention is through PM, and I'm happy to move to email after that.
  11. I've got a used La Sportiva Pegasus Primaloft Jacket for sale in men's small. Color is a grey with yellow accents. Primaloft One Insulation (100g weight body, 60g hood and sleeves). Very underrated jacket - lots of pockets, fleece lining, and nice elastic cuffs and waist. Check out Sportiva's info at http://www.sportiva.com/products/apparel/insulation/pegasus-primaloft-jacket. Works great as a climbing or backcountry ski shell. The jacket is in great shape. It has fully functional (zippers, etc) and no tears. Selling because I have too many jackets in this category. $100 shipped (PayPal) via USPS Priority (1-3 days) with tracking. Best way to get my attention is through PM, and I'm happy to move to email after that.
  12. I've got a used Eddie Bauer/First Ascent Igniter Jacket for sale in men's small. Color is a nice medium blue. Primaloft One Insulation (100g weight), a well-designed climbing piece. The jacket is in good shape - there are some signs of use, but it is fully functional (zippers, etc) and no tears. Selling because I have too many jackets in this category. $100 shipped (PayPal) via USPS Priority (1-3 days) with tracking. Best way to get my attention is through PM, and I'm happy to move to email after that.
  13. Moving to the Bay Area...need advice

    The Bay Area is an amazing place to live! There is little "good climbing" to be had locally. The aforementioned Pinnacles is a 2+ hour drive. Castle Rock down to the south is a popular crag. There is a bit of bouldering around Berkeley (Indian Rock, Cragmont Rock) that has some great history. Mickey's Beach to the north is another popular spot for bouldering. The local trail running scene is superb--Huddart Park and Windy Hill are in Palo Alto, Rancho San Antonio in Mountain View (next town to the South), and just those three parks within 10 minutes of Palo Alto offer tons of possibilities--the geography of the area will keep a motivated person in shape for any adventures in the mountains. The Bay Area does offer climbers great access to world class climbing venues such as Tahoe (3-4 hours), Yosemite (5 hours to the valley), the Sierra High Country (~7 hours) and Joshua Tree (7 hours). Distance to the north isn't too bad either - the Cascades and Smith Rock are an easy day's drive; Lassen (4 hours) and Shasta (4.5 hours) are volcanoes, but lack the scale that only the North Cascades offer. Year round access to world-class climbing destinations, more climbing variety as anywhere in the US, fantastic spring skiing are the selling points as a climber. You really do sacrifice local crags, but there's nothing you can't do in a weekend trip. As far as planning big objectives for the summer, focus on the Sierra (and Shasta, though the rest of the Cascades are doable as well). Big wall climbing, there's no better place. Distant alpine routes in spades. Superb granite cragging. If ice is your thing, the Sierras have enough to keep you content if you can catch them while conditions are in.
  14. Gamma MX Hoody or R1 + Houdini

    I avoid wind shirts (ala Houdini) when they're likely to get torn up from rock. They're super great pieces, probably the best value per ounce of any piece of clothing for moving fast through variable weather. The Gamma MX won't be as warm nor weather resistant (both in the wind and precipitation departments) as the Houdini + R1 combo, but it is durable, stretchy, and comfy to move in. When I evaluate my shell options for my time out in the mountains, the first question I ask regards durability. A windshirt is the clear #1 choice if it will hold up, but when it might get torn (from rock or tree skiing), I turn to a softshell in the 16-24oz category. I take a Gamma LT for warm weather, low winds, or moving fast, but turn to the Venta MX for supreme weather protection. If your Houdini isn't shedding water, take proper steps to restore the DWR. The first thing I do is give the old DWR a chance by tossing the jacket in the drier on medium-high heat for 20-30 minutes: enough to warm the jacket up for a bit, but not melt the plastic. If you aren't satisfied when doing a shower test, apply some Nikwax/Granger's and make sure to toss the jacket in the drier. Heat is the most overlooked way to care for this type of garment - it's seriously too simple.
