      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      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!

Strange arguing going on here. Some stuff is cast, some isn't. The original Jumar is a cast frame. The Petzl Ascension is stamped.

 

Every carabiner out there is probably forged out of aluminum bar stock, as that's the right way to make something light that has to catch a big fall.

 

Smart rescue units have dumped their old steel carabiners as "unnecessarily strong" or set them aside for training only. If you want some I'm sure I can get a good deal on them.

You're welcome. :wave:

 

And iain's right. We dumped our steel biners about 6 or 7 years ago. You can have them.

They weigh about a pound and a half each... but they're hella strong (Fu = ~52kN)! :)

If they are oval and no one else wants them, I'll definitely put them to use.
