7-pound backcountry rack used last summer in the Wind River Range.

Tricams, Stregor titanium cams and DMM quadcams, Aliens & WC Rocks.

The carabiners have since been replaced with WC Heliums, and the Camalots have since been replaced with Max Cams.

This one has to be my favorite. Minimal, yet enough gear to climb safely.

This is my modest rack. It's the third rack I've had. The first two were stolen.
The first one was ripped off at JT in 1987, while a few friends and I were out night climbing at Echo rock. I had every bit of climbing gear I owned in my truck,as I was just finishing up a month and a half climbing vacation
at Yosemite, Colorado, and finishing at JT. Every bit of aid, free, and misc.
climbing gear, I've collected since 1966, GONE, except for my rope, shoes, harness, and some QDs
I had while I was night climbing. :x
My second rack was stolen when somebody stole my truck and camper
from in front of my house. I got the truck back, stripped, with no campershell and no climbing gear. :x
If any of you are climbing on oldstyle gear, that has DWs stamped on them, You might be climbing on some of my old gear.

I love looking at the routes completed, or at least reported attatched to all these racks. I have an obsenely large rack in my mind, but I only have 20-25 cams and bunch of nuts pins and hooks (which I never use). I have a ton of ice screws but I only have like 8 that aren't totally dull. I am amazed by some of the Indian Creek racks out there though. I met a buy that had 20 #.75s, 20 #1s, 20 #2s, and 20 #3s. he had all kinds of other cams but those 80 were what impressed the hell out of me, because they had all been used to no end. Mind you he has climbed "tricks are for kids".

Interesting though, I was climbing with some friends and friends of friends in Boulder, CO one being G. Neptune. That guy is a minimalist and hardcore old school. G. pulled out his rack and it was a few nut, slings, a hex, and a swami belt. My bro pulls out his big rack of cams and looks at G.'s rack and make a comment like "don't you own a store in town and can have all the gear you want"? G. says ya, I love selling all that gear to people.
MD

I can totally see that exchange happening. I had the honor to climb with another of the Colorado "vetern" climbers with a nice light rack. I was a bit embarrased to bring my whopping load of gear out of my pack.

Question for brutus: How many draws/slings/whatever do you carry with that rack? and in what configuration?

Your rack looks pretty similar to my normal free climbing rack, but I find myself carrying too many draws. I've been pondering getting the cams re-sewn with long slings to help with that, but I do tend to place a lot of passive gear so it might not help much.

It would also probably help to replace all my biners with something lighter, but one thing at a time...

For a week in the backcountry, 10-12 shoulder-length runners and two "double-shoulder-length" runners made of the lightest slingage available -- sewn 6mm Dyneema I think? plus 2-3 screamers.

I normally wouldn't carry all 10-12 runners for a lead, but for a week-long trip, it allows me to leave a few if necessary at rap stations without finding myself short at the end of the week.

Configuration depends on the situation... moving fast, wandering terrain, runners over the shoulder with 2 carabiners on each. More than 5 in this config tends to tangle. Lots of fixed gear, runners tripled and clipped on the harness. Carrying all 10 runners for a lead, with less need for speed, runners over the shoulder with carabiners racked elsewhere.

Sometimes a combination of the above.

I had the slings lengthened on the Stregor titanium cams pictured, but in most cases I still find myself adding a runner to prevent walking. (pun intended)

That's pretty much how I replaced mine. One thing at a time.

Since I started reading the forums here, I'm learning new things about climbing and climbers every day: for example, you all love to brag shamelessly about your equipment! Are you compensating for something? But I guess it's part of the aura of being a macho rock climber, isn't it? Heck, as long as it works for the ladies ;) But that could be a topic in itself...

At least in one respect bouldering may be superior: not so much s*%&t to carry ;)

But then I am just a noob... what do I know?

Socrates; There are a lot of fine women climbers out there that like to brag about their racks also. So it's not a gender oriented issue.

Socrates; do you intend to jusy keep on bouldering, or do you intend in the future, to get into trad and sport climbing?
If you are just going to be a boulderer, then the sickness will not affect you.
If you do start trad and sport leading, the symptoms will come on quickly!
One of the first symptoms will be that, you will start fondling your climbing gear, and you get the hot sweats, wet and clammy hands, when you walk into a climbing store. The disease progressses very rapidly, and the next thing you know,
YOU are a GEAR WHORE, just like the rest of us!!! :lol: :lol: :P :twisted:

And you are so on the money with this one. As I was writing this I was already considering that I'll soon get bored of rock-hopping and want to do some climbing and then I will certainly get the disease. Actually, I want to try climbing soon... I just need to find a group of people who will put up with my "greenness" for a while.
