Not sure if these are "Petrenko" cams under a different name or not. Someone on rc.com bought a couple and pull-tested them and they actually had impressive results when compared to certified cams. However, the difference is they're not subject to the rigorous quality control that cams such as BDs a...

I think you need ~50 for all 3 stats to dyno? That's how it was before he introducted The Guide, though.

Le Gourmet has bolted anchors for the first 2 pitches. If you finish out on Critter Crack you have to build one. I don't think the 3rd pitch of Le Gourmet is done very often.

This game is a lot of fun. Like he said, its RPG style so you aren't clicking handholds and footholds but you do more of building your characters strengths, buying new gear, etc.

When I am belaying either a toproper or a leader from below I treat the GriGri like an ATC. However, I voted YES because I believe that if nothing is overlooked and the proper rope sizes are used, GriGri is in good condition, etc, it is safe. The GriGri and other types of autoblocking devices are co...

I'll trade you all of the above for a working, barely used, caps lock key. This thing still has at least 12,000 keystrokes left in it.
