New Gear

“The OutDoor Show in Germany last month was awash with innovative new climbing protection. Three  of the new inventions are pictured here. Several more are shown here.

Mad Rock Trigger Wire

Or these new cams for wide cracks:

Kong Gipsy frictional anchor system

And there’s this device which appears to be a combination of an ATC Guide and a GriGri.
