The following items of gear belonged to a caver who passed away in May. (They come from the same source as a long list of books I posted about on here on 19-7-19). The proceeds of his estate will be used to benefit caving, in ways yet to be decided. So we’re looking for donations in exchange for these items.
As you can see, most items are for camping or mountaineering, rather than caving.
Send a PM with your normal email address if interested in anything. Collect from Dales, or we may be able to sort caver post. (If you want to look at any items before commitment it’d be easiest to do in Settle. If you want to look at something elsewhere in the Dales, we’d need a bit of notice. Or we can always take photos for you.)
Most items in decent condition but ask for specifics when you get in touch.
