Community Night: Gear Swap & Patch Night

April 25, 2024 6pm

It’s time to clear out your gear closet and we’re here to help!

As climbers and outdoor enthusiasts, we rely on gear to do the things we love. Here's the question though: What do you do about your old gear? Our answer: This month's Community Night: Gear Swap & Patch Night.

Here are your options to give your old gear some new life:

  • Swap or sell it to other members
  • Get it patched, mended, or fixed on site by our team
  • Donate climbing shoes or harnesses to The Matthews House

We'll have food & drink specials for members all night long and anyone that comes in for one of the options above will get a drink on the house from our friends at Obstacle Brewing!

Gear Swap Details

  • Bring in your gear, throw a price tag on it, and hang out while others browse.
  • Pricing and payment options like cash, Venmo, etc are 100% up to you.
  • We cannot sell gear for you while you head down for a climbing session. Hang out, shop around, grab a snack and a drink from The Bivy!

Patching/Mending Details

  • Bring in your gear and drop it off with Janelle. She'll work to mend it, patch it, or fix it up for you while you wait.

  • Gear mending will be on a first-come, first-served basis.

  • Please do not bring in safety-related gear like harnesses for repair.

Donation Details

If you have shoes or a harness that are still in usable condition that you'd like to get rid of, drop them off with our team at the event and we'll get them to The Matthews House. Doesn't get much easier than that!

Drink Specials At The Bivy

  • If you're a Whetstone member and you bring an item to the swap / bring gear to be mended, we'll hook you up with a free beer from our friends at Obstacle Brewing!
