How NOT to Trad Climb


Sun came out, so we went climbing. This is a start to finish example of a traditional or "trad" climb with some thoughts given along the way. Trad climbing is where you have to place your own "pro" or protection and in this video we used cams which is actively placed pro as opposed to nuts and hexes that are placed in constrictions passively.


The beginning was a skit inspired by a funny video called "Sew it up" found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SauXG...

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.
