recently found this and wanted to share since belay glasses are a frequent topic on here, in particular cheap glasses.

check out this project(not my work just sharing something cool)

Thanks for sharing; that is pretty cool. My only concern with this design is that the mirrors should probably have some kind of shatterproof coating or should be metallic since they are so close to the eyes and rocks do occasionally fall when you climb around on them. Great application of 3D printing, though, and thanks for sharing!

Mirrors eh? That would be super trippy with a backwards image of the climber. "Reach up right to that crimp...err, left, I mean left!"

Yeah, you'll have to flip your spray.
