Hey all,

Is there such thing as a gear maintance book; something that covers everything from rope inspection to replacing wires on a cam? When I worked at a gym, Petzl once sent us a video on it.

Peace

I have not heard of any such book, although that doesn't mean that one doesn't exist.

Most manufacturers will have information about the maintenance and repair of their own products but not others. You would either have to pull all the info together in a common resource or just go with the general product info.

You might want to look at the professional/industrial side of each manufacturer's website. In the industrial world they are required to inspect and log their gear, so those sides of the websites might have some resources available to you there.

Good call, Petzl has a bunch of stuff on the PRO side of the site.
