Article: Urban Climber buys Climbing Magazine
Well, that should spell the end of Climbing Magazine. Urban Climber sucks! The layouts, photos, and articles are hastily put together and alltogether uninteresting. This should be good for Rock and Ice though.

Article: DMM to begin production of Alloy Offsets!!!!!
5 out of 5 stars Thank God. The squeaky wheel does get a little oil. Too bad it took em so long to come around. And personally, I'll believe it when I see it.

Article: Black Diamond nForce Editorial Review
You've answered how the ascender performs in terms of fully opening the cam. How does it work when you just want to ease the cam off a bit as is required when the weight of the rope below the ascender is not enough to allow the ascender to freely slide up the rope (at the start of jugging a pitch and after tying in short)? How does this action compare to the petzl? Do you still use your thumb to ease the cam or is that what the trigger is designed for?
