after the hard stuff, into cruiser hands.
I have a full unfinished basement I'm looking to turn into a workout area/gear storage. Let's see what you've got. Eventually I'd like to build a small bouldering wall and have some organization for climbing/winter gear. NickinCO

Plastic bins, stacked and labeled with lead hardware, dozens of quickdraws, another full of nuts and hexes, one full of just cams under 6 inches, everything stacked up and ready for picking out and use. Winter boots, tools and ice screws make up a few more. Seems better than hanging in a closet somewhere. Ropes remain in ropebags, separated by dry' for ice season and regular ones for sport, trad climbs. Miles of 1" webbing for toprope anchor setups. Tents, usually too long for the totes, so stacked vertically in plastic garbage bins with tight lid so mice don't get in to chew up all winter long. Yeah, my home is basically a gear store, ready for group use anytime. Woodchuck ATC

Rapping from the top.
I just use clear sterilite containers. I put my BD racks in one, WC in another, TCU's,mastercams,aliens in another. I am pretty OCD about it;) I wish I had a gear room! JoshuaJones

I have a shelf that has a few plastic bins on it, labeled with what is in them. Some things that I use more frequently just stay In a bag so I can grab it and go (i have a school backpack with my slackline gear in it, and a small duffel bag with just my harness, shoes, chalkbag, and belay device for the gym.)

I have an old kitchen cabinet hung up in my gear room. On the bottom of it I made a line to hold carabiners and other gear. I did this by using a coat hanger and making it straight into one long straight piece. I bent the ends up. At those two ends I curled them so that screws could hold them into the bottom of the cabinet. I know this description is horrbile but I love the ability to rack carabiners and other gear quickly based on my activity. randy88fj62

I am poor and cant afford art for my apartment, but i have plenty of climbing gear.

I live in a small place where space is at a premium, so the walls work pretty well for keeping my gear out of the way and still accessible - lots of those sticky, removable wall hooks.

I just hang everything from slings on the backside of my woodie. My old daisy chain works awesome for sorting pro, now nobody makes fun of me for wearing a daisy chain thong or tells me I'm gonna die. It's pretty rad.

I think Theriault is the winner! Unfortunately it seems he's Canadian, so it doesnt count. ;) Dylan Evans

That does look nice but how long does it take you to grab gear and go? I ended up doing something with plastic bins where I can grab and go. It's currently all packed for a trip but I'll post pictures later.

This is pretty awesome. I use bins/the floor in my office right now and I'm constantly digging around looking for something in particular. It'd be nice to have it all organized like that.

I use a peg board for all my gear except ropes, they go in storage bins. Makes throwing gear into my pack really easy and rarely forget something, because I can see it all without digging through bins. skeeter

Standard rack is on a gear sling, trad/sport draws are clipped on their own slings, then throw it in the bin in the closet. Packing is easy - just grab a sling or two and a rope.

Are you storing or displaying?

I did the pegboard thing for a while when I was all proud of my new gear, but it quickly became tedious. I'd get back from a climb, hang it all up nicely, then when I went climbing again I'd have to do the opposite. Now I just throw everything on a few slings and throw them in a Sterlite storage container. Grabbing my gear is just a matter of picking up the bin and putting it in the van, and the gear is usually organized enough after climbing to just throw it back in the bin. Ropes go in bags.

I leave my standard rack and rope in my pack so that way I am ready to assault at any moment. Just fill up water bottle and add calories. bradyk

I heard hanging your ropes like Dylan has can put excessive wear on a single point because all the weight is on it. Anyone know if there is truth behind that? Mostafa

sounds like bunk to me, I've never heard anything like that, but the rope weighs 8-10 pounds and it can hold over 2,000 pounds so I doubt it's being stressed by hanging on a hook. The climbing programs I've worked for hung the ropes from hooks in a similar fashion and never had any problems.

I have most of my shit hanging along the walls like others do here. Also have a bunch in plastic bins.

Truth be known, I have too much shit and really should sell some of it.

I'll get a shot posted up sometime soon and join in on the fun here.

Always a kick to see a bunch of climbing crap...

"300 square foot apartments don't come with "gear rooms"."

Thread drift:

Many years back I lived in one of those shitty little as fuck, "Studio" apartments. I was an avid photographer in those days and had a Darkroom set up in the super small bathroom. The bathroom was also my kitchen as the studio apartment had none. Needless to say, it was also the bathroom. So (this is 100% true!), I could actually be taking a shit, developing some photo's, and cooking dinner all at the same time.

Now there is a man with talent. Also a complete and utter lack of respect for the dangers of mixing chemicals with orifice interaction.
