So a friend of mine passed away a little while ago. His widow had a hard time getting round to going through the gear but has chosen to part with some things. Given the circumstances I'd request reasonable offers and out of respect for him I will ignore lowball offers.

Generally looking at around 75% of new prices or as noted. Will try to update as items are sold.

1 x 22cm BD Turbo
2 x 20cm light. Possibly titanium
2 x 19cm BD Express
1 x 19cm BD Turbo
1 x 16cm Irbis
MEC prices are $64 for an Express and $54 for a Turbo.
Bulk price $150 if you take them all.

Grivel G14 crampons. $239 new at MEC

Old mountaineering, flexible type. May suffice for a beginner on ice. $60 takes them

Nitro 3 shock absorber. Unused and tag has a $30 price tag on them. MEC price now $49

Asolo double boots, AFS Supersoft. Size 11

V-thread hookers - MEC new price is $15.50
Lets say $10 or $5 for the homemade hooker

BD makes the Spectre and the MEC price is $39. This one is made by Cassin but I don't know its name.

Ice axe pick protector

I have no idea what tools these fit but they look modular. Two reverse curve for technical ice and a mountaineering style regular curve.

You have two sets of tools but only one set of leashes. This top half would allow you to clip either without moving the upper between sets. I think the bag is not actually part of the leashes but was with them.

File, Petzl Ice Clipper, screw protector caps, spare crampon spacers. and two mystery straps.
