I'm primarily interested in Sport Climbing, so the quick draws, carabiners, ropes, and belay devices are of particular interest to me.

Am I understanding that I should not trust the ropes at all? My thoughts are to get the opinions of RC'ers here and then take the gear to a local rock climbing gym and look over it all with one of the experienced staffers.

When I visually inspect it, some of the quick draws look near-new. But, like you guys have been saying ... soft goods can look better than they are.

So ... Did I buy mostly useless stuff?! Damn!

Oh, and yes ... There are two ice axes, an ice probe, and two ice screws.
