Comments: WARNING:

I climbed this line today and noticed a serious safety issue with the fixed quickdraws. All of the fixed draws have aluminum biners and all of the biners have warn groves in the basket. The penetration range is from 25-40%. Keep in mind that the sharp edges produced in these biners can cut your rope in half if you fall and get a hard catch. Even if you do not get a hard catch, you can still get a core shot from warn biners. It has happened in a number of different areas, most notably t... more >>

Comments: CAUTION:
