Most of the stuff is Greg Epperson's;....some is Kevin Powell's, Kevin Daniel's....and maybe some of my gear too ...(If I can find some stuff I wish to part with). Greg is realistic;....he's keeping just the stuff he uses all the time;...I still want to keep EVERYTHING....and I even think that I may use it all.....(Yeah;...RIGHT.......)....The sale is on the main road to the west entrance to the Park....about 1 mile before the West entrance kiosk. It will be on the right side of the road, on K. Daniel's property...(Which is also for sale too, I believe!) I think Greg wishes to sell it all in person, and not mess with it on line;...he's rather busy most of the time,...and wants to unload it all (Or as much of it as he can......) all at's alot of stuff, and I'm sure all at very reasonable discount bro prices.......he gets alot of his gear from all his work in the climbing it aint' hot or swap meet stuff;'s the real deal stuff.....lots is brand new still in the package, as you can see fromt he pics;.....the used stuff is used;...Greag climbs and used gear gets beat on;...but for those of you who know Greg;....he takes really good care of all his stuff...(unlike alot of us........) the used stuff probably aint' too mistreated.........Here's a good reason to take that trip to J Tree.....climb on the low angle dummy domes, and score on the cool gear;....they savings you will recieve from the discount gear will pay for the trip down to climb! See ya at the yard sale! (I'm gonna buy some stuff too;....I can't help myself!....) This aint' my sale, but I want to post it for the climbing community, and for the people who are selling the gear; will be fun!

if anybody from around here (Bay area) is going to be there maybe we could make some kind of arrangement! I'd like to get another set of the old-style TCUs I see there in the photos.

If you REALLY can't make it to the huge biggest climbing gear Greg through the website;...especially for camera stuff or big ticket items.......but it's first come , first serve;......if you want something and you aren't there in person....some opportunist will gobble your item up; snooze, you lose. Greg is ready to wheel and deal;'s time to get serious about that wall you NEED to climb to;.....quit talkin' about it;...just do it.

What sort of yards are being sold? Are they full of yuccas and joshua trees and buzzworms, or? And how can I tell a climbing yard from a regular yard?

Interesting map that Greg put up on the ad starting with the straw-bail build B&B.

Todd, I know that George worked on that place but did Eppi too?

Who here is looking for a personal shopper? My fee is payable by cash, Paypal, Camalots or SLR lenses.

The baby picture is Greg with my oldest son, Beck....who is now three years old. Greg loves babies, animals, horses, and collecting cams, and German kitchen appliances. (Macht du schnell.)

Here is Beck as an older child.
