50 year old cave rope break tested in slow motion

Hunter Campbell @camp_316 donated a nylon Goldline twisted rope that he pulled out of a cave and believes was installed in the cave in the early 60s or early 70s. Never saw sunlight or water. 9.8kn to 13.8kn was our range. Lots of stuff on slacksnap chart, these tests were samples #924-#929… all on our website. Email if you want the book “Hooking Up”.

Breaking Gear Fear

Edutainment has been a great way to help people understand their gear, and know the true limitations of it.  Watching HOW gear fails is more important than the force itself, as almost all gear is super good enough.  It's more important to share information on how to stay safe than it is to have a paywall.  We hope our stoke is contagious.
