My son, who lives in DC, came back from work today only to find out the house he shares with five others had been broken into. Fortunately, the thieves only ventured on the first story of the three-story house. Unfortunately, they took his tool box and all of his climbing gear that was stored in the garage... he's really upset by that.
I had just gotten him a new rope for his birthday, which he hadn't even really used... Anyhow, what he's most upset about is having to replace all of his trad gear.
So, if you have biners, old cams, nuts, etc. sitting around in a box somewhere and you want to give them a new life, PM me. I'd be happy to buy old gear. I don't have any since I had given it all to him already - thanks!
