      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!

WTB: Your Old Sport Climbing Gear

Recommended Posts

I'm just getting into lead/sport climbing after doing a fair amount of top rope. I'm a broke graduate student, so I'm looking to buy cheap used gear with some life left in it.


Here's what I already own:


Belay Device

1x locking carabiner



Here's what I'm looking to buy:

Helmet (very large head)

Quickdraws (12x or so)


A few more locking and non-locking carabiners

Chalk bag

Maybe a rope (leaning towards asking for an unused one for Christmas)


If there's anything else I'm missing from my list that you found useful when you were learning to sport climb, please let me know. You can either post here with the gear you have to sell, prices, and preferably a picture, or email that info to me at jvance08@gmail.com. Thanks!

You can get a dozen Cypher Firefly quick draws from GearX.com for $8.75 each. That is pretty cheap for lightweight reasonable quality quick draws. I have the same set (branded Climb Axe) that I use for sport, they work fine. Grab some slings and lockers from the same vendor while you're at it and you'll be well on your way to having a good sport set up. You don't need much else, prob just 2x 48" slings, a couple 24" slings, 2x lockers like the Mammut element screw gate, and a few more random niners and you're good to go.

I have this gear currently available here on the CascadeClimbers site:




I'll sell the chalk bag separately if you want (right now it's on one of the harnesses I'm selling). It's an Arc'Teryx and is in fairly good condition, $10.


I have two ropes to sell, one is 9.5mm x 60 meters and the other is 9mm x 50 meters. I used the 9mm strictly for glacier climbing. The 9.5mm I used for trad and alpine climbing and is lightly used. I'll sell either or both of them you for $50 each.

For $100 I'll provide you with an unused rope (Beal Stinger III still in the bag), Black Diamond Half Dome helmet, and eight Petzl quickdraws. See attatched photos. Plenty of life left in this gear. Let me know if you're interested.DSC_0013_2_.jpgDSC_0014_2_.jpgDSC_0001_2_.jpg
