draws/rope...have to sell em

Post by an83angel » Fri Oct 17, 2003 10:03 am

hi, I know most of you don't know me, which makes it sketchy to buy used gear, but I was in an accident a couple weeks ago that's gonna keep me from climbing again and financially I need the money for the doc's now so If anyone is interested in some black diamond draws or a bluewater rope (60M)...both only been used a couple of times, I only bought them about 3wks before my accident, the price is negotiable. Thankx.

LOL... This would sound so callous to a non-climber... I love our sport.

I know this lady. She is trustworthy. However, I don't want to hear that she is selling her gear this soon after the accident. If she really is selling please be fair to her. How's that for codependency among friends? :cry:

Hey all, I have 10 Black Diamond draws they are wiregates, I bought them new for 15$ a piece so I'm hoping to at least get 10$ for each one, the rope I'll have to check for sure on the rating but it I was wanting at least 130$ for it. I have the a great metolius bag for it too, not sure on a price yet.
And Christian and I talked, I don't have much choice but to sell my stuff. So, thanx for all the kind thoughts, but unfortunately our bodies often can't keep up with our spirit. :wink:

angel, I'm so sorry you have had an accident and will not be able to climb anymore. I hope you heal soon, in body and in spirit.

I might be intrested in your rope, too. Please let us know the diameter or model name if you know it, and whether it has a dry treatment or is a bi-color (if you know). What did you pay for it new?

Lora, this is very sad... I'm sorry I have not come to see you after your accident. It is for personal reasons, as a climber I do not want to see another climber injured. Maybe I am a selfish prick?

If you change your mind about selling the gear, you have a safe place for it here. I will store it, not use it, until you want to get back into the action.

I really truly hope you are doing ok, Lora. Hope to talk soon.

later,
Andy

Hey,

Matt here.. yep from the gym! Hated to hear about your accident and now I see that your selling your gear. I sincerelly hope you reconsider the idea of quiting. I understand needing to sell the gear and I'm sure everyone at the gym will agree that you'll never have to look far for partner who has plenty of gear they can share with you. I just hope you reconsider and not let this incident keep you away from something I know you loved.

Remember when I first started at the gym? You were there full of energy and motivation to help some newbie fresh from behind a computer desk learn the ropes. Well, now it's time to use all of that energy and motivation on yourself and work towards getting back on the rock. I have no idea about the extents of your injuries, but from the many come back stories I've heard, I only have positive feelings that you will also come back.

All the best to you Lora!

PS: I also vouch for her legitimacy concerning these items. I'll also mention this to Stephen who is a member of the gym Lora. I think he is in the market for some gear.
