Have realized that you wide cracks make you curse? Do you feel hate and loathing when you think of how long it took the gobbie on the back of your hand to heal? Have you decided the smooth steep limestone is more akin to your gentlemanly ways?
Have no shame that the 4"-6" pieces are just no longer needed. Get rid of them. Next time you look at your rack you won't feel the guilt or the weight and you will be free to climb what you really enjoy. Better yet you will get a little joy knowing that someone else was stupid enough to want to try themselves. Who is that person? ME! I want your wide gear. Let me stuff my body in things that hurt and make me bleed from every little bone that sticks out.
BRING IT ON! Let me know what you have and we can strike a deal.

Tanya, I have a 5 & 6 last generation camalots. They are slightly larger than this generation. They are in great condition. If you can use them I can bring them to Moab and trade you for the guidebooks.

Oops...thatís a new five. I can let you have an old 4 (pictured below) itís about the same size as the new 5 and itís in great shape.
So it would be the 6 and the 4.

Tanya....Mike is correct. I just stained the deck and must have breathed too many fumes. So itís a 4.5 and a 5.
