It's only gear
It's really a life line...and me thinks you're trying to be brave, but this gear, as any other fallen, or aged-out climber's gear is passed on, not just for functional use; but the carrying on of a spirit and a life well lived. As much as climbers do indeed, look upon their gear with great fondness, this gear goes beyond just the person that receives it...it becomes an honor and a privilege to that climber to keep Ian's spirit alive and protecting the new user....karma, I guess...

Yes, a huge thank you to Cory and Shelly, what great folks! My son Trevor said he was glad he didn't have to handle our finances along with the the emotional toll, so I'm pretty sure he appreciates what I am going thru as I try to understand his plight as well. I am glad that Ian's gear will get to see the rock, he would want that. I hope nobody thinks I'm gross, but I got "a little bit of Ian" in the form of a couple scoops for Hudon to scatter up on his next climb. You think getting his gear together was hard.....

you know how much it would amaze and overwhelm and touch Ian's heart to know that people are actually buying 'memento biners' of his ?? he wouldn't believe it!

Audrey, Ian would be STOKED to know people were collecting his gear, this community meant the world to him.

BUMP

If you have not read this thread and Ian's story yet, I guarantee you will be touched by it once you do. You can keep his spirit alive and help his family with the financial toll they are facing by purchasing some of his gear from Mark Hudon, who will be providing more information here in the next day or so.

Or you can donate to Ian's fundraiser by clicking on the following link. No amount is too small and is so appreciated

Stunning day here on the east side today....I couldn't help but grieve for those no longer with us to enjoy it.

I have something I need to do today but getting Ian's gear online with Purchase buttons is my project for this weekend.

ALSO. I NEED a VERIFIED address for you from Paypal. I CANNOT send anything to a NON-VERIFIED address.

If for some reason you don't want to deal with PayPal, (and I really wish you would, since it will save me a ton of time and work) PM me, I'll send you my phone #, you can call, I'll get your credit card # and run it through Hood River Coffee Co. (PLEASE do Paypal).

I've received lots of questions over the night and I've updated the list a bit.

And BTW, this is a lot of work so help me out, be specific, which photo? what gear? look the price up yourself please.

No bargaining.

First paid, first served.
