Capt Mulch's Going Troppo Sale 1

2:26:59 PM
Hi all, I'm off to the Solomon Islands to live. I'm sick of this Canberra drudgery and need to up the anti on the lifestyle excitement. So, up for sale is a whole lot of gear which I will not be needing (and beer is an essential food group in the tropics, so the more money I have for beer the better).

For sale is (left overs!!):

BD Alpine Harnesses - brand new - 2 adult $40 each

La Sportiva Trango Evo mountaineering boots - brand new in the box - Oz size 12 - $280

Overboots - Forty Below - good condition size 11/12 - $60

Quickdraws - Petzl Spirit - excellent condition - set of 10 - $150

Mad Rock Flash - tortured my feet with these twice for five minutes - supposedly size 47 / Ozi 12 but would suit a size 11 - $30

Photos available on request.

With all this as new stuff, are you sure it didn't fall off the back of a truck! jk.

Methinks you're going to regret this sale... The real mountains of NZ are always just a short flight away.

All the best in the Solomons.

Having recently climbed with Capt I can confirm this.

... Sorry FB. I got in before you (by email) due conversing re the rental of his house now that he is moving out. There is no grappling hook amongst it, but I will be looking to offload the Talon and maybe some others down the track, as I did not want to stuff the Capt around by negotiating for a split set.

11:00:29 AM
So you're moving up to Canberra M9?

11:01:44 AM
Or should I say Mr Harding-Robbins. No wonder you're an aid climber.

No, but I know someone interested in the rental.

Heh, heh, heh.

Ok all, I'll update the list on what has been sold etc. Sorry, a bit snowed under with all the replies.

Contrary to popular belief, I am not giving up climbing, just getting rid of excess gear that I won't be using much in the next few years.

12:24:00 PM
OK, updated the list now. Anyone who missed out, I'll keep you on the runners up list in case the deal falls through. Thanks all for showing interest.

I'm off to where it's tropical, warm, the maidens are dusky and beer is essential to maintain your weight (I kid you not...). Salome, Leleana and I are off to live in Munda, New Georgia, Solomon Islands (check Google maps). There's plenty of climbing once you find it and one of the best right hand surf breaks in the Solomons ten minutes away by boat (Skull Island). Oh, and did I mention that fish under 45cm in length are called 'bait'. Really good diving if you're into that, and I'll be living next to one of the most significant WW2 Pacific battlefields (lots of cool war junk everywhere - even the proverbial 'Jap planes buried under the airstrip' that I want to dig out). I'll be easy to find, just turn up at Munda and ask for Nick the Aussie Guy.

Salome's mum has given us her house to use - it's right on the beach about five minutes bus ride west of Munda township. Here is the view from the local bar (Agnes Lodge):

I'll make sure I check into Chocky regularly and upload any pictures that are cool. I'm happy to do beers WW&S before I go, you just have to turn up :-). BTW, it is all my gear - I've had it hidden in the shed for all those winter mountaineering fantasies that just didn't happen this year.

The Cams are back on the menu. Aaron's missus thinks my gear is 'second hand' and suss - M9 was quite happy to climb on them at Booroomba last month!!! You tell 'em M9 - nothing wrong with my cams!!!! :-)

Anyone got a dinghy they want to sell cheap? That looks like a good beer drinking spot Mulchy.

>You tell 'em M9

Happy to C_M.

There is nothing wrong or suss with Capt_Mulch's climbing gear.
Mulchy looks after his gear, and this is self evident upon seeing it.
It is relatively new / as-new, and consequently in excellent condition. In fact when I led with his rack recently, one of my main concerns was the possibility of scratching his newish shiny stuff and detracting from its value!

The only half-negative thing I can say is that I prefer my own gear-sling to his one because I did not adjust his to my size prior to using it due swinging leads, and I am not used to the Metolius way of compartmentalising equipment on a bandolier style gear-sling. This is an entirely personal preference. I am old fashioned. The gear sling is also new / shiny and after seeing this newer sort in the shops prior to finding that Capt uses one, appreciated the opportunity to try one out(!) and reckon it would be easy to get used to.
