Dangers of Rope Worn Carabiners
A Friday gear tip for you: on Monday, Black Diamond posted a must-read QC-Lab article on the dangers of rope wear to carabiners. Recent accidents have occurred in which the worn carabiner of a fixed draw has completely severed the rope, making this too important for any climber to ignore. Read the full article here, and a big thanks to the crew over at BD for posting something so important for all of us.
Climb safe this weekend!
