I'm far too lazy to post pictures of my minuscule rack. I am a fan of that one with teh biners vertical though.

My total gear consists of:
1 60m 8mm canyoneering/hauling rope (static)
1 60m dynamic
1 100 foot dynamic
4 Yates Zipper screamers
6 Yates Ice Screams
4 BD Turbo Express Screws
3 Omega Pacific Screws
7 Ti Screws
Mountaineering axe
1 set of cheap tools (hammer and adze)
one aggressive Grivel mixed tool to complement previous tools when necessary
Givel G12 crampons
Old Cassin crampons that don't fit
La Sportiva Trango EVO GTX boots
2 pairs of shoes (La Sportiva, one newer, one torn to pieces)
Full set of nuts (don't know brand)
Full set of hexes (don't know brand)
5 old style forged friends (#1 and #2 doubles, #3 I believe)
4 BD Camalots (0.75, 1, 2, 4)
Various packs and backpacking gear (stove, pad, sleepnig bag, etc)
Headlamps, avy beacon, shovel, backcountry gear
8 Omega Pacific draws
5 slings (2 48's, 3 24's)
A few assorted free biners
3 ATC's (1 smaller for 8mm rope)
1 reverso
2 harnesses (BD Alpine Bod, no name brand other one)
1 chalkbag (finally caved in)

That's it. It's not as much as the list makes it sound like.....it'd be REALLY small compared to most. Also, I got most of it at a fraction of the retail cost because I watch eBay and this site's classified ads compulsively while at work. Friends + full set of hexes and nuts and a few assorted biners = $82 with shipping. Not to mention the other stuff I got great deals on.

Probably the thing I'm proud of is that my assortment of cameras would put all but professional photographers to shame:
1. Canon EOS Rebel-Ti (film)
2. Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT (350D)
3. Mamiya 6x7 RB medium format 220
4. HP Photosmart 5 mp
5. Olympus 3.2 mp with 10x optical zoom (much older)
6. Standard VHS-C or whatever video camera
7. Sekor 90mm lens for medium format
8. 50mm lens for Canon mounts
9. 28-130mm lens for Canon mounts
10. Lightweight backcountry tripod

And naturally a fridge full of film.

I live in a room that measures 8 feetx11 feet. I have my bed, desk, desktop computer, books, guitar + 2 amps + mini recording studio, clothing, 2 snowboards, skiing skins, 3 sets of ski poles, all climbing gear listed, tv, DVD player, sleeping bag, backpacking tent, guitar bag, sleeping pad and various other assorted things all in that room. It's a nightmare how efficiently the space is used.

Not as fast as I'd like.

The 50mm is f1.8, the 28-130 is f4.0....pretty slow. The Sekor is f3.8 but it doesn't much matter because the medium format is strictly tripod only. No way could I hold that thing still, it weighs a ton with the heavy lens and back. The f1.8 works nicely though in almost all conditions and I use a tripod liberally.

This is what we takes to Indian Creek. Took my girlfriend and I a few bucks and years to gather.

Camalots: 1-#4.5, 1-#4, 2-#3.5, 7-#3, 10-#2, 11-#1, 10-#.75, 9-#.5, 5-#.4, 5-#.3, 5-#.2, 3-#.1

Metolious: 7-#5 BLK, 2-#4 RED, 5-#3 ORG, 5-#2 YLW, 5-#1 BLU, 1-#0 PUR, 2-#00 GRY.

1 set Black Diamond Stoppers.
1 set Wild Country Rocks
1 set Black Diamond Swedges

22 quick draws
8 shoulder length draws
5 double shoulder length draws

I find that in the smaller sizes the Camalots and the Metolious cams sizes fit in between each other well. Very important to get the right size goin in the thin sand stone cracks.

The stoppers and rocks are about the same size but have different tapers
allowing a fine tune fit in cracks.

the thing about Indian creek is that even with as big a pile of stuff as that is, there are STILL routes that you'd need to borrow gear for.

That rack may be many things, but "light" is not one of them.

There's some kind of photo compression/resizing or something in some of these pics look really twinkly. Also, go back and look at Kristin's post on page 2, must have posted a new file under the same name :lol:

I'm embarassed by how much I like this thread. I need to get a camera and contribute, but my rack is basically euroford's minus the ice gear and with a less coherent collection of runners.

Weak as it has been, this winter needs to end, or at least give us some clear enough weekends for some gloves-on aid fests at D-Lake. I'm tired of walking past the gear closet and peeking in longingly.
