Premier Post - Ice and Alpine axes and Boreal Triglav B2s size12

EZ on 09 Jul 2012
I never quite made it into winter climbing and my life is taking a different direction so I'm selling my axes and boots.

DMM Rebel Adze and Hammer - 160 the pair or 90 each (Obviously I would prefer to sell them as a pair)

They are unused with slightly scuffed tips (from metre of 'look at my new toys' tooling on rock) and a couple of chips in the powder coating.

Manufacturer's detail: http://dmmclimbing.com/products/rebel/

Review: http://www.ukclimbing.com/gear/review.php?id=301

The cheapest I can find these online is 99 each (+p&p)

------------------

Black Diamond Venom (57cm) Adze and Hammer (Including a lockdown leash on both) - 120 the pair or 65 each (Again, I would prefer to sell them as a pair)

They have been used for 12m of dry tooling only. (I know they're not technical axes but were all I had for the UKC Plas Y Brenin weekend last year and I wanted to see how they'd do. They got me up what I was told was the equivalent of a grade 5/6, so I didn't do too badly :-)

Review: http://www.outdoorgearlab.com/Ice-Axe-Reviews/Black-Diamond-Venom

The cheapest I can find these online is 70 each (+p&p)

------------------

Pair of Boreal Triglav B2 boots (Vibram sole) UK Size 12, US size 13, EU size 47 (Including volume reducing insoles) - 100

These have been out on the hills for at most 100 miles (including some minor scrambling) and are in excellent condition with only minor scuffs and no damage to stitching or the Goretex lining. They are semi rigid and walk comfortably without crampons. Being B2 they will accept C2 or C1 crampons (My Grivel G10s, which I am keeping for winter scrambling, fitted just fine without the need for the extended regulation bar)

Besides a 150 pair of size 8.5, the cheapest I can find these online is 190 for the pair (with free p&p)

------------------

Royal Mail quote the Special Delivery postage costs, to be added, at 9.75 for any of the pairs or 7.55 for any one of the axes.

To save postage costs I can deliver or meet up with you if you live or climb in The Peak or I can be at home for you to collect daytime or evening if you are local enough to Uttoxeter.

Payment by Paypal, bank transfer (preferred) or cash.

My bad: The Triglav boots have Boreal's proprietary "Dry-line" waterproof membrane and not Goretex. Sorry!

Oh and I am open to sensible offers :-)

In reply to EZ: I can vouch for both the seller, and for the amount of usage the gear has had!

Happy shopping! :)

Are you sure you don't want the tools for that beckoning chalk mate?
