I'm selling all my rock climbing and mountaineering gear because I am no longer climbing. The items are being listed for sale on ebay. Heaps of stuff (some of it rather historic!) is being auctioned in small batches with low reserve prices.

Here are the listings on ebay: https://tinyurl.com/yb5224x8

Sellng cams, quickdraws, wired nuts, hexes, nuts on rope slings, crampons, ice tools, double plastic boots and a range of other stuff.

The best way to ask a question about any of the the gear is to open the item on ebay that you're interested in and click on "Contact Seller".

LOL! That's probably only the second one of those Mammut plastic chocks that I've seen! I have one of the small ones, and it's probably the second least useful piece of gear I've owned.
(The least useful was a symmetrical conical wired aluminium chock. Although it improved when I dug out a big file...)

I've also got one of those size 1/2 HB cams - it will probably still be in good condition a hundred years from now!

Yep the HB cams are incredible quality.

And the angles on the plastic chock are really weird. I've never tried to use it but it would take a very specific crack for it to be useful!

I actually tried using mine a time or two. Apart from the weird angles, the material is quite soft. So in something like Mt Buffalo granite, the crystals simply cut grooves in the plastic! Not really ideal!

I climbed at Buffalo with a bloke who had a couple on his rack. Apparently hed used one of them elsewhere and taken a fall onto it and had a terrible time retrieving it because it deformed slightly and effectively welded itself into the placement.
He kept them on his trad rack because he regarded them as lightweight retreat pieces if ever he needed to back off an adventure route!
