I called, they are sold out. Dude said they only had like 7 to begin with but expect to have more (once the sale is over). I can wait on these, I couldn't wait on Fixe Aliens

Im surprised no one has mentioned www.spadout.com

Just search for the specific item that you want and this website finds the best deals among many of the major online outfitters.

They also have a neat "rack simulator" which lets you input what protection you have on your rack. It will then graph the number of pieces you have in each size, and give you a weight distribution of your active vs passive protection.

backcountrygear.com

Currently has climbing gear on sale and by far has the best selection of brands.

Also campsaver.com

not everyone smiles

Not everyone will be able to use this but give it a go: www.promotive.com
Browse through the teams and see if you qualify for one. They add new brands when they can. I voted to have Black Diamond, Patagonia, and Metolius added. We'll see.

Lucander off the GT Ledge on p. 2 of Keep on Struttin.

I heard there's this guy who hangs out at hotel parking lots in Vegas selling gear to climbers. He mumbled something about T-wall and methamphetamine but he had great deals on cams, ipods, msr stoves, and rotting organic produce.

Sorry, I couldn't resist.

Just when you thought they had dumbed it down all they could, with range finders, etc...

The Clymb is also a really good spot for cheap gear but it takes forever to ship.

Check mountain project's "Dirtbag Deals" on the right side of the home screen for starters. Google shopping will help you look as well. For names, I'll start the list. Basically, go with whatever is cheapest. backcountry.com ems.com rei.com altrec.com alssports.com backcountrygear.com e-omc.com campsaver.com usoutdoor.com I'm obviously forgetting some, but these are some I've personally ordered from. At any time you can usually get 15-20% off any given climbing item. Best case, you'll get ~30% off. EMS and REI have big seasonal sales that give around 30% off if you get lucky. Always have an eye open. If you're in the NE, in EMS stores they give a 15% student discount on full priced items, all the time. Good luck picking up gear, and beware, it's an addiction...


www.spadout.com will automatically search and aggregate prices from all of those sites.

Do not shop at REI. Especially if you are just getting into it. REI is a joke. The only shop i have been to where I havent caught someone giving bad or incorrect advice is the boulder store in colorado... because its boulder. Once youve been climbing a while you can use it, but dont ask for advice. chances are, its off or absolutely wrong.
I also dont recommend buying used until you know what to look for. MP members may be nice, but not all of them are, and you could get swindled. buy new to start.
+1 for spadout. And Bentgate.

Awesome slab climb right out of the water! Rogers Rock, Lake George, NY. Summer 2013.

I am found many of them pretty close to each other in pricing - but places like Moosejaw gives you points that you receive with each purchase that can be used for free stuff later on. EMS has some good sales and when you are a regular customer you can get e-mail coupons for 15-20% off as well.

I buy from Moosejaw, EMS, Backcountry, Colorado Crack Gear, and Mountain Gear as well.
