I'm holding off on that for the moment, as I'm moving there for 3 months over summer. Camping on top.

I'm sold on them. I spent five minutes trying to clean one of Bomber's tri-cams out of a horizontal break on Lamplighter at Araps, and was amazed how persistent the little blighter was at hugging the rock for such a simple protection device. They are a good price, on special, at my favorite OS gear site (apologies Steve):

It's a good thing they're cheap because it sounds like you'll be leaving a few behind in the cliff.

I got some. I like em!

When I first saw them on Hawkman's site, I thought they would suck compared to the ordinary tricams but the wire thingo is awesome. The wire's flex really works to cam the placement in.

Another nice piece of Eastern European climbing technology. All I need now are some Estonian biners to go with the Czech tricams and the Ukrainian cams and I'll have an entire Eastern European rack.

Then I will die.

I'm not sure how even a Russian rope would just fail, if that's what happened, the different reports list
different causes for the accident, first one "rope broke" second one "he was scaling down the wall when
he slipped" that second one is definitely an office stooge trying to make shit up to explain what happened
I hope the guy is going to be OK, but if he was using line bought at the local hardware store, then that
would explain the rope breaking !

Ropes don't break. I have a 16 year old Edelrid dynamic that I've towed my van with. I occasionally rap on it and will continue to do so. I do, however, quite regularly do that incredibly tedious test of the rope's core by hand. I reckon I'd rap off old Russian ropes as long as I'd checked that there cuts or damage to the core. I would never consider leading on it, though.

Anyway, this doesn't belong on this thread.

I'm stoked tomorrow is Sunday and I'm going to go climbing.

Stoked that cool hand lock & I found an awesome section of new climbing at the Piles, one route went
ground up, the other will need some major finessing to finally send it, much harder crack than Paladin
