  1. Nasty, I once ripped the pad of my left thumb open with my Zubat. I wasn't even climbing, just wanted to show my hand saw to a friend of mine. The saw was new so still a bit sticky in the sheath, it wouldn't come out so I grabbed the sheath above the lip and pulled out the saw and sliced myself open with it. Five stiches, nerve damage and serious embarrassment! Not one of my finest moments.

    Working Holiday

    I'm thinking of travelling to Finland, Sweden or Norway in September for a two Week working holiday. Yes I know! a working holiday is a contradiction I'm willing to climb or work on the ground for food and accommodation, thanks.

    Climbing helmets

    I was referring to the top and side impact ratings being compatible with groundwork and climbing on the Protos.

    Climbing helmets

    I have three helmets, i'm happy enough! [emoji16] As far as I'm aware and I could be wrong but the Pfanner Protos is the only Arb helmet rated for climbing and groundwork.

    New 2019 Sequoia harness

    I've been looking at it as well, looks like the waist and leg loop buckles have been improved. Also I see that the lower dees are bigger and more user friendly.
