Would you Trust the Beal Escaper for Rappelling?

You asked, we finally did it. Bobby Hutton, Michael Rogers @wolf_in_the_weeds, and I unbox and do human testing by rappelling and seeing if it works (spoiler: it does) and how many times you have to pull it to get it to release. THEN we slow pull test it in our HowNOT2 Lab and it broke at 22.7kn which is impressive, not only for a rope product with a MBS of 18kn but the fact it didn’t slip. Thank you Doug Robinson for helping us with an entertaining Intro!

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.
