Ok I'm in on the belay device comp, I just had an idea and I figured out in my head how I値l make it so now I want to. Let痴 do it in the summer though, my wife is going to leave me if every 2-3 months I知 obsessing over the next piece of gear I知 going to make, not to mention we池e in the middle of a home remodel and I知 doing all the work on that too.


I weigh around 220 (I知 63 and a welder), so how about we up the weight, I壇 like to know it will hold me.

Another thing like the cam contest, but open to more devices would be nice.

Photo contest? Give it a theme and get a crew together to judge it, so that you dont have to rely on the ratings (and bombings) in the photo system on the site.

Same with an article/ trip report.

Most remote place to post to knob.com contest? Might be fun, but maybe it will just be a boring showoff for folks with too much money and satelite phones

1. Homemade Belay Devices- Similar to the homemade cam competition but with belay devices. Test consists of a factor .75 drop of 150# of steel with a static belay and calibrated mechanical brake hand per Jim Titt's article. For fun we can put fruit and vegetables in the drop zone. Some other judging criteria can be slippage, weight, autolocking, etc.

2. The Art of Protection- Build a functioning piece of protection that will hold 4kN and is as pretty as possible. Basically the same as the cam competition beauty pageant but opened up for any sort of gear you like.

Those two sound like great ideas, I would be most interested in a passive pro contest though! I have had some passive pro ideas for a while. I haven't ever thought to design a belay device so I have no ideas but to modify already existing ones.
