RIP Climbing

SOLD The enforced retirement from Climbing due to a torn scapholunate ligament is playing out its final episode and after three years of NO routes I am selling all my gear.   Since becoming injured in 2006 I have done no outdoor climbing; returned to my road cycling, mountain biking and sailing roots; and taken up kitesurfing so I have really no time or money to even think of getting back into Climbing.  Selling now to try and get funds for a boat.

There is a lot to sell and the thought of putting each item onto ebay is a timely nightmare so I’ve put it up for auction as a single bulk item.

Most of the kit was bought in 2000 but some pieces were added between then and 2006/7 when my injury occured. None of the metal gear has taken any falls although the quickdraws have seen more sports action. If marked with a * then less is known about the kit as it belonged to my wife. It goes without saying that this is climbing equipment and at somepoint your life may depend upon it. If I felt that it wasn’t safe to USE TODAY I wouldn’t be selling it – BUT this does NOT mean it won’t at somepoint reach the end of its safe working life. I would advise replacing the fabric slings in the next couple of years but am of the opinion that the metal gear has many more years in it.
