    T Rex stretch?

    Hi All, I'm going to put together a whoops or loops with an X ring on Trex rope, I believe that the T rex stretches a bit (unlike tenex?) But does anyone know how much?.... Am I ok to use a locking brummel up tight to the ring or should I go for a long loop and larks foot onto the ring? Suggestions, hints, tips and some mockery welcome.... Bing!

    Peterborough. Would you be willing to post and loan it out for a few weeks????

    That is the most likely outcome as no one seems to want to let there's go, which is in itself probably testament to how good they are. $220 including postage but possibly import tax on top (?), that's a big investment in something that may not work out. I do have a friend coming back from Canada in August so could get him to bring one back with him, would save a few pounds, but August feels like a loooong way off (yes, I know, patience grashopper).

    Full time climber pay

    company in Cambridge was offering £30-£34K for an experienced climber with tickets including 41, must have towing license too. Oh yeh, job and knock as well apparently.... That does seem to be the exception rather than the norm for PAYE in this area

    Bulldog OAR ascender/descender

    Looks good, simple and solid... You've just described me : ) The version that I use is exactly that, a few adaptations of my climbing style and away I went. Get in touch with surveyor and see about giving it a go. I'm surprised more folk have not given some of these variants a try out, maybe they should be made in some funky colours to peak the gear junkies interest. Bing!
