    New Rock Exotica Nano Swivel

    Swivel is brand new, never used. I don't have the paper work but could maybe scrounge it up at the shop. If you need the story, I bought a compact BDB, I had a swivel on it. Coworker also wanted a CBDB, and bought this particular swivel to go on it. I sold the bone to him. I already had a nano...

    Salewa Mountain Trainer Mid GTX

    I loved how comfortable these boots are. Like a glove out of the box immediately. HOWEVER I bought these boots in July. They were delivered to my door July 28, 2016. I started having issues with them the second week of October as far as the leather holding up. I gave them the benefit of the...

    Anyone repair their boots?

    Not sure what I'm more upset over, they fact that they're cut (only about a month or two old) or the fact that I have zero clue when or how it happened? I can't remember making a chainsaw cut near my foot. It's a fairly clean cut. Thinking maybe I could stitch it then put some sort of adhesive...

    Rings or block

    So I picked up a decent sized removal on the side for a friend. 24" 70' sweetgum. Well within my capabilities, but beyond the scope of what I actually own. Good news is that it's a no haul. I'd like to start doing more and more side work, nothing that'd compete with my employer of course, as we...

    First Double Braid Splice

    I initially thought this was Cougar Orange, but upon closer inspection, appears that it is Yale Blaze. Came in a bag of rope. Anyway, here's my first try at a double braid eye splice. Followed Samsons Class I double braid splice instructions. Critique as you see fit.

    If you had 38-40ft

    of 5/8" Tenex, what would you do with it. I don't have any thing for rigging, but I also don't have a NEED for it right now either, as I don't do much on the side, and work provides. That's all subject to change of course. I got it in a Bag'o'rope from TS. Figured if I made something useful, I...

    Home brew knee ascender

    My first attempt at splicing anything other than three strand. I followed Samson's directions for a whoopie sling, and improvised where I saw fit since it's not life supporting and it obviously needed to be more compact. Still have a few other modifications and additions obviously. This is a...
