Huge rack for sale. Cams galore!

2:38:06 PM


Thatís it. Iíve given up traditional climbing. I have kids now, no time, no partners, a novel to write and Iím going back to uni. Itís sad but I have to move on. I need the money for a four month trip to France (and everyone knows you get deported for not using bolts there). I want to get rid of it all in one big lot.

One huge rack for the beginner or sport climber who wants to get into trad. With some more slings and carabiners, this would be pretty much all the gear youíd ever need in most trad places in the world.
None of this equipment has taken any kind of fall, ever. I was a cautious climber and trad climbed well below my abilities. All equipment stored in gear bags in dark closet and carefully cleaned and lubed after each climbing trip. All equipment bought new within the last 2.5 years, except two smallest Black Diamond camalots, which I was given by a guy I used to climb with in New York. He used them for a while but never fell on them. You can comfortably climb on this stuff like as if it was new. I just took the shine off some of the stuff so you donít look like a total newbie.

I can ship to anywhere in Australia. Contact me for an estimate. For those in the Sydney area, I can drive it to your place (metro area) or meet you at a climb gym or you can pick up from my place.

Total price when new over $2000. I'm asking $1200 ono. I'd rather sell as one unit at this stage... I thought I'd offer it at a lower cost to my fellow Chockstoners before I go and try to flog it all on ebay.

ABC Nuts
These are apparently made by the same people who make Omega Pacific nuts and as such are identical to their Smileys. The numbering system is interchangeable with Black Diamond stoppers. Set includes all 13 sizes except number 7, which is replaced by Black Diamond equivalent. Condition ranges from 10 to 7.

Kouba Nuts
My favourite nuts and not only because they share my name. Big and meaty and fit nice and snug (like me). Originally a set of 8, but I left the number 3 somewhere on a route in the Gunks when it would not come out (itís there for free for anyone who wants it). Condition: all about a 9.

Metolius Curve Nuts
Easy to place, sizes 2 and 3. Never placed, a few scratches from rubbing against other equipment on rack.

Camp Tri-Cam
Pink 0.5 tricam. A piece so legendary and loved that thereís a song written for it. Condition: 8

Black Diamondís largest number 11 hexcentric slung on invincible spectra cord (Condition: 8) and Camp wired number 4 hex (roughly equivalent to a BD number 4) (Condition: 9).

Trango Anchor Equalizer
Super fast and easy way to equalize two or three pieces. Will dynamically adjust to fall direction. Great piece, never used (because I learned to tie off using the rope and could never kick the habit).

Metolius Multi Loop Gear Sling
Sling your carabiners and slings on your harness and use this baby for your protection. Doesnít swing around the place and dig into your shoulder. Easy to pass on to your partner at change over. Condition: 8-9

Nut tools
1x Black Diamond nut tool and 1x Camp nut tool both on their own non-climbing biner. Good as new.
