I think it is also important to know HOW you "passed on". Was it a freak gasoline fight accident, climbing fall or old age? Mark Cushman

I will be fully equipped in my casket with a harness, boots, crampons and ice tools. Full rack of cams and screws. Buried with my toys.
Or. I can just give it all to you Mark.

It sounds like that is where you get all your new gear. I'll have to keep an eye out for you next time I'm out there.

Me, of course
My father's best friend and climbing partner of 25+ years passed away last year, and I got most of his rack, draws and ice gear, which is all much nicer than the stuff I owned previously. I know this thread may be trying to stay lighthearted, but in all reality passing on the tools that gave so much joy to you in your own life to someone else who can continue to use them is the way to go.

I just hope I can still climb at an old age. After I die, I'd like for my partners to enjoy my gear. "You can't take a U-Haul to your grave" they say... Kat A

I'll go ahead and offer to take that off your hands!! ;)
But, I'd say gove all my crap to someone who can enjoy it!

I want to be burned and scattered all over the places I've been
so, might as well let some friends argue over the booty while they're completing my mission!!

Why is there unfinished beer in your fridge? I tend to drink everything I open...unless it's some mass swill...and then...well...it doesn't belong in my house. LOL

With gear...well...I just plan on my son and daughter getting into climbing like their daddy.
