Ok, time to add a rack for the OTHER side:

Yea, lets hear it for us poor 17 year old climbers who live in a town with NO open jobs!! YAY!!!

lol but really, you would be supprised by how much stuff you can get up with just a set of nuts...

I'm a college student now with a part time job and I work summers, but just be glad that you have a job in high school. The school that I went to didnt allow us to have jobs during the school year........or even have cars (it was a magnet boarding school) . Take what you can get and be happy with it.

This is my modest rack. It's the third rack I've had. The first two were stolen.
The first one was ripped off at JT in 1987, while a few friends and I were out night climbing at Echo rock. I had every bit of climbing gear I owned in my truck,as I was just finishing up a month and a half climbing vacation
at Yosemite, Colorado, and finishing at JT. Every bit of aid, free, and misc.
climbing gear, I've collected since 1966, GONE, except for my rope, shoes, harness, and some QDs
I had while I was night climbing. :x
My second rack was stolen when somebody stole my truck and camper
from in front of my house. I got the truck back, stripped, with no campershell and no climbing gear. :x
If any of you are climbing on oldstyle gear, that has DWs stamped on them, You might be climbing on some of my old gear.

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.


that almost made me vomit on myself

OH MY GOD. I've never seen such geekery. Most of the gear in these pictures looks like it's never been used. I'm guessing it looks like that because it hasn't been used. Lame thread.

Why buy the gear if it sits on hooks in your garage looking shiny?

How would one "pony up"?

cmajercz:

The answer is...because we can. My gear, for example, is organized by size and type and hangs on four (count'em) four sheets of pegboard in my garage.

There is a disco ball, two bar stools, and a sound system so that I can enjoy my gear fully.

And it's all brand new, because 90% of my rack was stolen in January and I just replaced the whole thing.

If you think I am kidding, you are wrong.

I don't know how to post pics to threads, but there is a picture of my rack in Cracklover's profile.

Now...POST UP! :)

Someone broke into my truck in Joshua Tree over the New Years holiday. I had most of my rack in the back, other than specialized wall gear.
