Anytime kieran.

True or false -

A six foot unicycle is technically easier to balance on than a 2ft unicycle?

What about a 24ft vs 6ft then? it a mystery?

It was a while back, and I was climbing with a friend on Defender of The Faith on the North Wall of Mt Buffalo. She was sorting gear at the first belay above Comet Ramp ledge, and pulled the excess rack out of the haulbag at the time, in preparation for the upcoming pitch.
Somehow that cam became detached in the process, and fell from that height, bouncing a glancing blow off Comet Ramp ledge and going the remaining distance to the gorge floor.

It was surreal, watching it 'float' downwards, till it struck the glancing blow off angled rock, and continuing it's journey, of approx 200 m all up...

I later recovered it, as it had actually never been placed prior to that, and after checking with it's original owner have been granted the item.

BD informed me that they don't sell spare axles... ~> so apart from being a paperweight, the only useful item on it is the sling; however I have kept it in case I ever need spare trigger wires for my other cams.
