What gear?

Sport rack? Trad rack? How complete? Aid Rack? Aid rack, and haul gear, and full big-wall everything, including porta-ledge and pig?

What are damage rules? If you damage a piece, you buy it? At a discount if worn? How do you define "damage"? Is a bent wire on a cam enough damage to be damage?

How much does an extra piece of luggage cost? I should be able to get most everything I need into an extra piece of luggage, so any rental that costs me more than that probably isn't worth it. So, if it costs me $100 each way to bring my gear, that means I won't want to pay more than $200 total for rental. So, if I'm doing a serious climbing trip -- a week or more -- I'm not going to want to pay more than $30/day for a week, or $15/day for two weeks.

If I'm on a business trip, and sneaking in a day, or weekend, of climbing -- this might be more helpful. But, then, hopefully I'm hooking up with someone local to climb, and they have gear.

you were able to fly to most far away places with 2 bags but now you get 1 freebee and the other ,$250 per extra bag if traveling outside of US on most airline and that is for 50 lbs.

your rope is 16 lbs
basic rack is 25 lbs
harness, shoe and misc another 10 lbs

you are already at 50 lbs without your personal clothing, backpack and other stuff.
