Where is there a good gear store within an hour?

Post by dray2009 » Tue Apr 23, 2013 2:04 pm

Searched the forum to no avail. I'm down for 10 days in May and hoping to pick up some gear I can't get in Canada (limited selection), namely certain 70m doubles from Beal and Mammut. Are there a couple of good climbing gear shops within an hour or two of RRG? Much appreciated.

You might check with Benchmark Outfitters or J&H Outfitters in Lexington or Miguels (send a PM to "Local" on this site to contact them directly). I would see if they can order it for you. Most places around here don't carry doubles because we don't use them in the Red so they would need to order it for you.

Thanks. Yeah, my plan was to have them order in the gear if they were a distributor. Wanted to get a list of these retailers though, prior to calling. Thanks all.

Yeah that place is a shithole, all the people there have birth defects due to the Ohio River being so polluted.

Yeah, all those poor people who grew up super short and, to top it all off, have small ape indexes.
