The Summer Trade show was great, saw lots of good equipment from the Out Door industry. Saw lots of friends, who are still active happy and alive!
So what pleases me-lots but I'll keep this simple, cos simple is often best. Clever stuff that makes climbing or any other sport more fun.
Some math One light quick draw=55grs
20 light quick draws=1.100kg
Are light carabiners weaker? Not the Grivel one above, its 22kn across the major axis and gate open 8!
Is it hard to clip, not for me. Yes I am an expert but its easy to improve your game. Clipping biners is not an a mysterious art form its a simple learnable process like easy climbing. Learn and improve! How much weight do you save? You save a bit is the real answer, but that bit is the bit you carry! The weight you save is the bit that pulls your ass down on an overhang!
If you chose the right gear everything from packing your bag for that flight to the walk up to the climb of your dreams becomes easier. Easy!
