are they any good for mostly parallel placements? I'd guess not...

interesting point brought up on hybrids usually contacting on the lobe edges - why don't they just make the lobe edge angled so it is parallel to the ideal flare? yes, obviously it would cost more, but would it hold better in real life usage?

but, do the non-angled edges avoid the outward force vector? that should be there no matter what in a flared placement, so angled lobe edges would increase surface area and therefore friction to counteract the outward force vector

the mini tricams look precious, but getting them out could be tricksy, ya'll need to do a test on them to see how good they really are.

2 minutes shy of the record.... while the rest of us would be glad to get up it at all.

just curious - are they short fixing off single pieces with a clove hitch? I know this is risky for many reasons, but watching the video of the Huber's record climb, it appeared that way.

how about an ETA on DMM brass offsets?
