Hey everyone,

I'm a (poor) student and new climber, going to Ouray in January and need to get some gear beforehand. If you have any of this or know anyone that does, please let me know the details and asking price on the forum or by e-mail, meghanmowry@gmail.com.

Thanks!
Meghan

If you're going to Ouray for the ice festival, most of the gear you list can be demo'd for no charge... you leave a credit card or a driver's license and you can "check out" a pair of crampons, tools, etc.

Would you care for a set of DMM Predators (missing 1 adze) spare picks (mixed climbing) and leashes? Wink

I'm curious what a new climber is going to do with a Mini-traxion?

Set up a roped solo rig.

(really bad idea. they tend to ice up very easily and make you scramble to put yourself on rappel.... or so i've heard.)

I think the key word is "new" though. Setting up rope solo systems seems to me at least to be a bit more advanced. Which seems to be confirmed by the problem that you mentioned.

I won't be using my mini for tr solo on ice anytime soon, for that reason.

I'm not comfortable by myself on ice anyway...way more potential "ouch, need help" factors than in rock (IMO).
