      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!

Bent Gates

Recommended Posts

I know that bent gates shouldn't be used to clip to bolts or pro, but does that apply to bent wires too?


Is it alright to have the 2 bents clip into the bolts? I've seen what can happen when you climb above a biner and realize that it's easier for bents to get torqued across it's gate and become unclipped, but does that apply when if you are just setting an anchor for someone to top rope/follow up if they won't be climbing above it?

Bent wires are to be used the same way bent solid gates are used. For setting up an anchor you can use them. For bolted anchors lockers on bolts is better, well that is what I like. But tons-o-people use sport draws for anchors, just make sure that the biners are opposite.
