    What Causes Milking

    I have to admit, I didn't really know what milking was; the cover growing longer than the core, or the core extruding from the cover? The first rope I owned - 11 mm HTP with no eyes - had about 3" of the core squeeze out from under the cover. My drenaLine with a sewn eye had about an inch of...

    Scientists discover how knots work

VT was too long with my short wrench tether. Settled with a 6 wrap Michoacan. I...

    Moss Cinching Lanyard prototype

    Knotability and hand seems fine, although the skinnier diameter might make it feel that way compared to a thicker static line like Xstatic. Doesn't cable as badly as, say, HTP, again maybe because of its construction, although I have't climbed on it recently. I'll make some descents using my...

    Moss Cinching Lanyard prototype

    Going to try the wrench on my 10.5 Platinum today or tomorrow. I think climbers don't like the lumpiness of it where the core and cover are connected, but I like it for stealthy rec climbs for its light weight and low visibility. Also have a hank of Samson Predator coming from WesSpur next...

    2020 , 9th CT annual Rec climb !

    I can't commit yet - that's at the end of my son's winter school break, so we might be on the road. If we're back early, I'll hop on over. Really want to try the Moss Cinching Lanyard. Andrew, let us know if you have a Mass climb in March.
