I go there all the time

You can get used gear, but, be carefull what it is you buy used, esp. if you don't know the person you are buying it from.

I'd never buy things like rope, used, you can't see inside it and you don't know how it was treated, it could have been shock loaded like hell and you'd never know it.

I've been looking for groups to climb with, but I'm in Dallas, and the groups of people I have met from Dallas have been... well I'll be nice, I'd rather not go climbing with them (I'm a transplant). I'm sure there are plenty of good people in Dallas to climb with, but I don't care for the organized groups I've seen so far.

dude, fixer...
if you want to head up to the 'tas or Erock with another non-texan transplant, let me know. I get to the wichitas on a semi-frequent basis.
