Gripped Climbing Magazine exposed some Newbs

Collin Watt sent me this Gripped Magazine article Newb Alert! A local offered these guys a lesson just so they don't die because they were using sketch gear. How would you handle seeing someone spray bolts and using gear that was unsafe???

The 5mm cordelette we tested in this video broke at 3.4kn and 3.0kn. Super sketchy!

12kn Carabiner episode i refer too is at

He sent us the quickdraws! See the break tests at

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.
