Not mine, but an awesome cam anyway! Apparently it actually works too!

For the guy who cut up his TC Pros due to Haglund's Deformity - check this out! A dremel grinder or a die grinder can work marvels at removing the rubber where necessary, while keeping part of the sling to prevent your foot from sliding. This picture isn't my work but I did the same with my shoes and it works like a charm.

Laminated 3x5 index card with emergency contact info and medical info taped inside climbing helmet.

This is a good idea.

+1 for the laminated card! I have my information written on the inside of my helmet in case I lose my gear, but I will go one step further and laminate an index card with some emergency contacts as well, great idea!

I think I'll have to do this as well. Could easily add a QR code with more info as well. I have a mini lighter and a flat razor blade taped to the inside of my Petzl Meteor.

Here are my north machine carbons. I added Petzl quark grip rests, making it fit via a heat-molded Lexan insert (so that it won't crack with cold). Also added grip tape to the shaft to make it less slick when wet/icy.
