I'm looking to part with some circa 1978 gear, and a few newer pieces if anyone has any esoteric interest?

Chouinard hexes #7 (two), 8, 9, 10, 11
SMC Camlock #7
Forrest Titons #1, 6, 8, 10
Camp Interalp hex #4
DMM Bug belay device ( one new, one used twice?)
Salewa half screws (four)
Random military ice pound-in ice tubes, 11" long, (two)
Stitcher belay plates, one with spring
Salewa bent 8 belay plates (two)
DMM 8 (new)
SMC brake bar
SMC square 8 (lots of use, collectible? I dunno)

Make an offer and we'll figure out shipping. If no interest, they will be available in 2 weeks at the Alton Bay, NH Transfer Station.

Dood, you might recoup some of yer moolah if you sell that crap but you'll
never recoup yer self-esteem! ;-)

The National Transportation Safety Board shoulda come down hard on whoever
made those split screws! I remember them but even I didn't buy any! ;-)
I forget, who did make them?

Reilly, I figure that with my upcoming 2000 mile move, if I haven't used them in over 25 years then I don't need them. The half screws are Salewa; I think I bought them when I was first starting ice for $1-2 each at the EMS bargain bin. I placed one of them once (from the base) and never placed them again.

Tad, you've all shamed me into keeping one of the #7 hexes, but for the 8,9,10,&11 how about $25 First Class, or $30 Priority? Hell, if you want to meet up for a day of cragging in July when I'm rolling through Cali, I'll give 'em to ya!

Hey Edge if you're planning on doing any Sierra routes, hexes are great to leave for repels when you get off the descent route at night. Cheaper then camelots.

That's what I'd be interested in, although I might have the military pound-ins already.

Shiho, I'd split the Salewas screws with ya!

Tad, you are welcome; I'll send along my addy in a minute. Not sure exactly when we'll be passing by Redding on our way from Sacramento towards Oregon, but I will certainly start a rolling trip report when we leave in mid-May and I would love to meet anyone from the Taco en route.

To be fair, I will be selling these first come/first served and next in line is an offer on all the rest. Once I know if that is a go or not, I will let everyone know if there is anything remaining.

If anyone wants to make an offer on a 3/8" Goldline (not sure, but I think it's either 120' or 150') then I will send that to the highest bidder.

Cheers!

Update:

Everything in the pics/first post is sold; I will reserve the funds from the sale for the express purpose of buying gas to cross the Midwest states as fast as possible. Thank you to everyone who expressed an interest.

The Goldline rope I mentioned in the above post is still available.

I'm interested in that itty bitty hex.

The one on the blue runner; maybe it is not a hex?

Just a point of interest - the half-tubes look like the Stubai ones, and enlarging the picture vaguely seems to confirm that.

John, that little guy is the #1 Forrest Titon. The smaller sizes were more of a wedge shape as opposed to a "T."

I can't confirm now whether the half screws are Salewa or Stubai, everything was mailed out this morning. Thanks to everyone who bought some gear and will no doubt give it a good home.

As an aside, the Square 8 was my only belay & rap device from about 1980-83, and accompanied me on the South Face of the Column, RNWF on Half Dome, and West Face of El Cap, among others. I pulled a bight of rope through the small end and clipped to a locker, and it caught many falls in this belay plate mode. Man that thing got hot rapping down after fixing over the Kor roof!
