Not entirely all my gear but mostly is. All out and ready to go in the dirt. Note: beer should be considered a requirement for all Fisher excursions (don't worry, there was alot more out of the photo).

That's DJ stuff. I'm liking the MS2000, Blofeld, Minibrute, A4, and the other synths.

^^^it was just a matter of time I guess.

It would have been really impressive to see the "Traveling Stopper" appear in each one of the previous pictures. Now THAT would have taken some serous coordination!

Since when does a rack include draws, harnesses, shoes, and others. I always thought the definition of a rack was limited to protection.

To make an analogy, I feel like all these photos are like when girls stuff their bra to make their "racks" look bigger.

socks in pant syndrome ...

IMO, starting off with a smaller rack (and i started off with a bigger one) makes you a better climber ... those who i know who didnt start with shinny doubles of everything tend to be much more solid ... they are faced with planning their pro more carefully and getting better at passive pro

I agree with this. I learned to trad climb on a .5, .75, 1, 2, a rack of nuts, and 4 tri-cams. Needless to say some of my current partners hate me because I actually place nuts and set them meaning they have to clean them.

And no. I've never used a draw alone to protect something. Have you?

I have used just a draw/sling as pro once or twice. Slinging flakes, trees, knobs, chicken heads, and anything else I can hitch it around. I agree posting something like shoes as part of your rack is fucking stupid though... knowbuddy Buddy

Are those green draws screamers? If so what kind of climbing are you doing to need them?

He said he he was in the Fishers. I saw all the screamers and wondered too until I saw that.

My first rack was 8 second hand nuts, 6 new hexes and about 30m of tubular tape cut into sections and tied into slings and draws.

I currently have 20 cams and 20 nuts, endless draws, slings etc - and climb about the same as I did then, not quite as hard, actually. Much less likely to die, much more likely to get a hernia.

Stich: Very envious, though I'm more of a guitarist/percussionist, so my set up is more microphone and pre-amp oriented. But any synth enthusiast would be majorly jealous looking at that pic.

How are you liking those Rokit monitors for mixing/mastering? I am thinking about either getting those or the similar, black and white yamahas.

Finally took a pic of my rack minus the WC 5 & WC 6, ropes, slings, belay devices, etc.

So, now that you have the WC#6, how do you think it compares to the BD#6? NC Rock Climber

It's nice to have both, but for all the rarity and sought-after-ness of the WC #6 I find it easier to use the BD #6. While the the BD #6 does do a scary walk (funny to see) I often use the moving toprope method and/or climb back down to retrieve the #6 to use higher up. Being easier to retract and balance on my thumb helps with pushing it along.

What do you think?

I had heard a lot of great things about the #5 and #6 WC cams. Like you, I sought them out. This was about a year ago, and they were not easy to find and not cheap. After using them a few times, I found that I liked the big BD cams better. I will keep the WC cam and continue to use them. However, I think that the BD product is more stable and easier to push up from below. Obviously, there are many different opinions about this, and in the end I just think it is a matter of taste.
