You could open up a shop with all that. And I thought I had a bunch of gear.

this is most of my free climbing rack...the most recent picture of it, anyway...the climb above me (the Fox at Red Rock) ate up all but about 3 of the aliens.

thanks to cavitycrew for the pic

for those who care, that's only 1 of my 6" cams- i have two. I also have a set of bros that isnt in that pic, and a couple of other cams.

i do use a stick on the bigger cams- typically my #4.5 Camalot and bigger. I think a couple of those sticks broke that day, so only the #6 got a stick. Yes, I carry it to make it smaller, and no, i've never had a problem with it.

edit for cost and weight:

weight- well, the whole thing is obscenely heavy. general rack clocks in around 9 or so pounds, i think.

cost- way too much. retail is somewhere in the $3000.00-$4000.00 range for just the trad gear. add in clothing and aid gear and its enough to buy the car that carries it around.

Since there has been a few rack pics theads before, lets do something interesting.

Recently there have been two other rack threads:
How much does your rack weigh
How much does your rack cost

I say we combine those two with this one. Post pics along with weight and cost. Previous posters could edit their posts to include that.

I have never seen or heard of this before...let me know.. Thanks. accident or master gear racker??

John,

The #6 C4 looks larger than life! I would make my second (sherpa) carry it around until I was ready to use it!

BTW- I'll probally secure one for my upcoming trip to the valley. All my friends will have big cam envy!

There is a better way than using a stick. Cut a section from a wire coat hanger so that when you thread it through the cam there is about 1/2 - 1 inch on either side. Use a needle nosed pliers to make a small loop out of one end. Then tie a piece of string from the loop to the stem. This keeps the cams smaller on your rack and when you need to use it, just bite on the wire and pull it out. This can be done one handed as opposed to the stick trick that can sometimes take 2 hands. This doesn't damage the cams but I wouldn't store them long term this way.
