    My WOD

    Ya, that's the problem I have I'm beat after work, and it seems like I always have to many obligations, to have a serious work out schedule. Going to try a crossfit class in mourning before work and see how that works out.

    I wasn't sold at first, but after using it for a while now, I see no reason to ever go back to a hitch.

    SRT or DRT what do you find easier?

    I SRT almost all climbs now, I find it more efficient, fast, and can get to more parts of the tree. This is after climbing DbRT for 18 years. I feel I'm faster and less tired after a climb now at 39 than at any other part of my climbing career.

    New Chipper

    Josh, we have been running a 1590 bandit for the last couple of years, and have been very impressed with it. The only issue with it has been the computer it's gone bad twice now.

    Would this biner be legal in comps?

    Mark, can you explain how that pic could possible happen? I can see cross loading it with a sling or splice pulling against the gate, in doing so depressing the magnets, but as soon as the weight is removed the magnets would lock. How would you cross load a biner like your pick without it...

    Would this biner be legal in comps?

    I see what your saying, and I can see why they might not allow it in comps, because they have to account for every possible scenario that it could possibly be used in. That being said I still think its a great biner for my lanyard set up, but if some one can show me a reason it's unsafe I would...
