Combined Rack

Leo and I combined our racks while climbing at the Gunks.  My contribution was a set of Wild Country Chocks, at set of Black Diamond Camolots #0.5 to #2, a set of Black Diamond C3's 000 to 2, set of Camp Tricams  and a  set of trad draws.  The best contribution from my rack was definitely my 2 Metolius Supercams.  These off-set cam have an amazing range and would be bomber when nothing else would do.  A definite addition to a full rack.
Leo had some great additions himself.  He had a set of Metolius off-set nuts that slotted so well in old pin scars.  He also had a full set of cams (Metolius?) that he recently had re-slung with double length webbing.  What a difference it made.  Usually you did not have to use a draw to clip in, the sling was long enough.   This was rounded out with some small cams, a set of draws and various other things.  A very nice set-up for multi-pitch climbing.
