Hunter Campbell (https://www.instagram.com/camp_316/) sent me a bunch of corroded carabiners, quickdraws and hangers from a cave that he and Kyle (thumbnail), Aaron Moses, and Dave Smallwood projected.
After only 10 years in a cave, the carabiners look like croissants, the hangers are groovy and the dogbones look ok but broke way lower from the liquid sandpaper (silica in mud).
