Buy and Sell Used Climbing Gear Please do not post retail SPAM.

Free cams, ropes and shoes : All gone

2:48:25 PM
Moving country and divesting myself of stuff. Have some old climbing gear that is free to anyone who wants it and can pick it up from the inner Northern suburbs of Melbourne over the next week:

Cams: Three Metolius (size 5, 6 and 8) and a small wild-country. All ~10 years old, climbed on for ~2 years. Nothing wrong with them as such, I just didn't like them and changed over to BDs. Slings still seem in fine condition and have been stored in the dark, but caveat emptor nonetheless.

Three tricams. Again, in fine condition, but not my cup of tea. Some folks swear by them, I just eyeball them nervously and get another piece of gear in as soon as possible.

Shoes: Evolv and Boral, US sizes 8.5 and 8, respectively. No holes but edges worn down. Would be fine if you wanted a spare pair for friends you were trying to lure into the sport, if you wanted to re-sole them or if you have a fetish for slightly smelly used climbing shoes. If you do have a fetish for slightly smelly climbing shoes please send me a photo of yourself - it's possible we could really hit it off...

Ropes: All retired from leading, but I'm pretty conservative about doing so early. I'd still cheerfully toprope on them, tie stuff to my car with them or weave them into a rug. Again, caveat emptor.

PM me if interested or call me on 0418 247 381.

Edit: All taken!

On the other hand, I'm still waiting to hear from the twenty-something Audrey Tautou lookalike with a fetish for slightly smelling climbing shoes. It seems Chockstone can't deliver everything, sadly.

M9: Likewise, have greatly enjoyed the occasions I've got to tie in with you or just chew the fat up at Buffalo. Please look me up in the event you ever want to check out the climbing on the West coast of the U.S. My email is on my account details, or Bones will have my details.
