Even a NOOB can use it 5 out of 5 stars

And I'm proof. I'm still learning cam sizes, so when I don't want to futz around with my powercams, grabbing the wrong size and pumping out, I unclip the grey supercam, and it always fits. Lobe retraction is a bit strange and takes some getting used to, but it places well, and I've never had a problem cleaning it. I'll be buying the other sizes too.

Piton Climbing Shoe (Manufacturer link) Average Rating = 4.50/5 Average Rating : 4.50/5

Very good all around shoe 4 out of 5 stars

Most comfortable shoe I've worn. Very sticky rubber, does everything well but nothing spectacularly. The toe is surprisingly stiff for standing on small nubbins. One drawback: I wear men's 11's, and they don't fit my skinny foot as well as spires, especially in the heel.

Great autolocker 5 out of 5 stars

How much chalk are people using!?! I've had this three years and a lot of climbing and it's never hung up on me. I'm a southpaw and the unlocking mechanism works very easily, one handed.

Omegalite 4.0 Wiregate Carabiner - Special Buy (Manufacturer link) Average Rating = 4.00/5 Average Rating : 4.00/5

In: Gear: Essential Equipment: Carabiners: Non-Locking Carabiners: Wire Biners

My favorite non locking biner 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: dynosore, 2007-01-17

Huge gate opening, pretty light, and priced nicely. They are a tad big, but I'll live with that verses fiddling with the latest micro-biner. Bought 36 of them and glad I did.

Axis Rope 10.3mm x 60m 70m Average Rating = 3.76/5 Average Rating : 3.76/5

Great rope, great price 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: dynosore, 2007-01-17

Bought this rope when I started climbing, haven't used a rope since that I like more. For 120 bucks at gearexpress, I have no idea why anyone would pay more for an all purpose rope. Dry treatment works very well, just the right size for a Grigri if you're so inclined.
