I have a buddy who has a bunch of gear from about 15 years ago. It's mostly very lightly used. I want to buy it. .. but we have no idea what a fair price is. Needing help. Pictures provided.
16 nuts
8 cams (4 camalots, a solid stem 3 or 4, 2 little aliens, 1 friend)
4 hexes size 6,7,8,9
Assorted slings, draws, biners

The runners, daisies and dogbones should be replaced if they are 15+ years old. As well as the slings on the cams. $150-200 for the lot.

Edit: after reading about "solid stems," (only one cam has a solid stem, right?) I'd only offer $125-150 for all.

Frank is right about the slings, but I think his evaluation is a little low. ~$300 is where I'd be considering everything is lightly used and I would be comfortable offering a friend this.

I used to buy and sell a lot of gear but really it's hard to say without closer inspection. Replace those slings and you'd have a nice little starter rack.

Cheers!

$2 each for any biners
$0 for the soft gear, toss it. DO not be tempted to use it in 'non-fall' situations (yes, i have heard that said)
$50 for the nuts
$30 for the hexes
$200 for the cams. They all need to be reslung.
$60 for the ascenders
$10 for the pulley
I buy and sell bunches of gear, this is halfway between what i would want to pay and what i would want to sell for.
Friend might cut you a deal to taking it all, packages usually come cheaper than individual pieces.
And yes, yer gunna die.

We all do.

That top left purple-ish dog bone next to the blue ascender looks like the old REI brand sling. Mid 90s for sure. The hard good look in great condition. What year did the .5 and .75 go to single stem? Late 90s? Scottmx426

~200-300 for everything

You can use 7mm cord on the friends/camalots and webbing on the aliens rather than reslinging if ur cheap

Replace the dogbones with new slings to turn em into alpine draws

But dont throw away the old slings either .... Mark them with tape as not for climbing use and use em to practice knots and testing

For re-slinging I've had good luck with Mountain Tools in CA. BD and Metolius also have re-slinging services but only for their self-branded gear. So I'd go with MT. Spiny Norman

Best and most accurate advice.

Oh, none of that gear is old school. Hell it ain't even that old.

It is a rei draw... I think it probably is all from 90s. My buddy climbed professionally back then and this is his gear. He stopped climbing when he joined the army Jer Alz

My buddy decided to keep the gear. He would want $500 plus for all of it and did not want to piece it out. So it's not for sale Jer Alz

Last year I purchased almost exactly those items.... except I got a figure 8....

CASH DEAL $200

toss all the old nylon, the metal bits are good to go.... if your friend wants 500..... walk away.

and BTW nuts are hexes...
