Re: Coffee on Rope?

Petzl said that the rope should still be safe!...and, that coffee has very little acidity (about the same as human sweat)...they recommended simply washing the rope; and then, if the coffee stain is still visible, re-evaluate and perhaps retire. Thanks for everyone's input.

Re: PDs at Lode

I seriously doubt that this was an attempt to reduce traffic...most likely, it was an attempt to rid the Lode of old, manky, and potentially unsafe gear!
