      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

review Break Testing Climbing Cams

Yea, it is a shame that they tapered the crack so far down.  It doesn't look like any of those cams would have been able to be "placed" through the constriction they pulled them through.  So basically you are testing it as a nut placement.  I guess it is interesting to see what breaks first on the cams.....lobes, sling, or wire.  But I would be more interested in the actual holding power of the cam on ideal placements.  Like what was the dynamometer showing when the cams were slipping before they became overcammed in the constriction?
