      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Gear & book sell off

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

It's been a long time since I have been active on the site. Please: any of my old friends PM me or respond to this thread.

 

I am probably moving to Argentina for the mountains and the back roads.

 

I have to get rid of a lot of climbing gear and mountaineering books. I will start a list soon.

 

To start with...may I have an offer for 1-31 Alpinist magazine set in good to excellent shape ( sorry, I don't have the Zero).

 

If you need something, PM me and I might have it for pre-sale. I am keeping some of my ice and high altitude stuff but most of my rock gear is up of grabs. I am willing to sell extra cheap if you are worthy and broke. I also have a couple of items that might be museum stuff. An original Chouinard rock hammer for instance.

 

stay out - steve

okay, so here goes a list of guide books. I'll follow with technique guides and couch books.

 

I'll give (name), (author), shape (1-10) 1 is readable and 10 is mint, copy right date and edition (if not the first). Most are "make offer" on the price. If not I will suggest a price. Offer me one dollar and I might take it.

 

 

 

CLIMBING GUIDES

 

Colorado Front Range Bouldering, Bob Horan, 8, '89

 

Mountaineering in Iceland, Ari Guomundsson, 7, '95 ( hard to find guide)

 

Climber's guide to Smith Rock, Watts (of course), 5, '92

 

Red Rocks Select, Todd Swain, 6, '93

 

Haleakala - a guide to the mountain, Angela Kepler, 8, '88

 

Yuraq Janka, J Ricker, 5, '77 second edition, Very rare but essential to climb in Peru $15+

 

Climbers Guide to Yosimite Valley, Steve Roper, 4, '71 first edition...a true classic

 

Owens River Gorge Climbs, Marty Lewis, 6, '93

 

A climbing guide to Oregon, N. Dodge, 5, "75

 

A climbers guide to Sakha (BC.), McLane, 6, '93

 

Sport Crags in S. Ca., Troy Mayr, 7, '92

 

Desert Rock, Eric Bjornstad, 8, '96

 

Denali Climbing Guide, Secor, 7, '98

 

Cascade Alpine Guide -Columbia River to Stevens Pass, Beckey...but you already knew that, 9, Second edition '79

 

Tahoe Rock, Meytras, 5, '87

 

Rock Climbs of TahQuitz and Suicide (where I started), Vogel, 7, '85

 

Climbing the Cascade Volcanos, Smoot, 7, '93

 

A Climbers guide to Glacier Point Apron ( My old home turf, I climbed almost everything in the guide), Bruce Morris (The serious Dude), 3, '81, Super SUPER rare ( maybe unfindable and signed copy) but still the only GP specific guide ( I think). Cheap to a good home to somebody that will use it.

 

ALSO,

The Climb, Anatoli Boukreev, 2, '97, FREE and I will pay for the postage if you are interested in the Everest disaster and read "into thin air" which sucked IMHO.

Hey Ivan, good to hear from you too. Nope no Nazi shit....I just love the Andes. If you want TMI my daughter is gay and my step daughter is black...nazi does not really fit my profile.

 

I do have a purple Camalot. It is practically new...I hated carrying that SOB around, never fell on it, barely has a scratch. You could probably take it back to REI as new. Got a red metolious quad cam...might be the sam size as an alien. I'm not sure. What size do you want?

Protection...

 

I have gotten rid of everything that is the least bit questionable. Anything I sell is within 80% of new condition. Frankly, I don't want the liability of selling some old worn out piece of climbing gear.

 

Make an offer...

 

CAMS and hardware

 

A complete set of Camalots 0.1 to 4...11 total.

 

an extra #2...my favorite size

 

0,1 & 2 metolious tri cams

 

4 & 5 Metolious quad cams

 

purple & silver Wired Bliss tri cams... I love these for finger cracks

 

1 through 4 of these crazy strong custom wired cam slide wedges, strong as hell, perfect for tip cracks, brilliant design except they fix. If you take a hard fall the crack owns it...not you; But, hey, your still alive. They grab better than any cam made.

 

5 old school tri cams, blue through pink

 

1-9 Wild Country Rocks

 

12 very small wedges

 

several KB's LA's and angles

 

3 old jumars

 

6 unused bashies

 

lots of soft gear

 

some odd ball wedges and hexcentrics

 

gobs of 'biners

 

let me know if you want something, I'll get into other stuff later - steve

Wow Steve! Sounds like a great new adventure.

 

good to hear from you, Oly. still climbing that wall in your back yard?

 

Yeah, I want the Andes in my back yard...'love those mountains. Although, I may be to old and beat up to use them much.

 

cheers mate

Nope, had to tear it down! A raccoon momma crawled in back of it and had a litter. It was nuts and stuck to high heaven. I eventually just tore everything out just to get rid of the smell, plus I needed to paint that side of the house.

 

Yeah, but to get out and enjoy the hills before we have to be wheeled up them.

hi again steve. i replied to your email and sent you another pm. i would definitely be interested in the whole set. if for some reason the purple 0.5 is shipped, i would send ivan a newer purple c4 in exchange to keep your set intact? let's work out a price!

Hey Josh,

 

I have not shipped the 0.5 to Ivan yet...But he wants it and I agreed. Should I send it to him or do you really, really want the complete set. $350 for the set, I think, pretty fair. They are, as you have seen, in the photo almost new.

 

stay out - s

Are you aware what climbing gear sells for in Argentina? You could probably put an ad on the wall at Club Andino and sell for double what you'd get here. Or better yet, sell for same price and make a lot of local climbers happy. :)

if steve and i can arrive at a price for the whole set, i will work things out with you ivan to ensure you get a purple 0.5. you guys are friends and i don't want do wrong by either of you in the deal. mountain gear has a complete set of the newer c4s for $570 shipped as part of their current sale. optimistically, i was hoping to be in the $250ish range for a set of the older camalots. if not, i will probably pass.
