You should contact the restaurant exec. that Tommy and Kevin surprised during his presentation! I'll bet he would shell out some serious dough for a cam off of Tommy's rack!

I wish Tommy wore a 46, or better yet a custom pair of 46.5!!!

The harness is already over $100 with 6 bids and 6 more days to go. A pair of signed TC Pros are $152 with 7 bids. What a marvelous thing to do Chris!

Bump for this will be interesting to both participate and watch!

Ha ha, yep even single-stem camalots that aren't C4s are getting on towards "vintage" by now…and '90s gear like HB Quadcams just get confused stares at the crags…

Maybe Chris is just using vintage to mean "pre-recalls"!

Brooks: please explain how that is inherently bad for access???

Besides people from the big cities crowding the crags. . .

Haha! That would make a great video of some young kid squinting confusedly at an old guy with hexes clanging on a rack....

And towards that hex idea, Chris has some of those AND a little Dolt nut for auction as well. I've bid on a couple things, feel free to bid stuff up: good cause. http://www.ebay.com/itm/VINTAGE-CHOUINARD-HEXCENTRIC-NUT-COLLECTION-and-DOLT-3-VINTAGE-NUT-/261893267114?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3cfa0e1eaa
