Rope and climbing gear testing

Author: 1 Comment Share:

Tom Moyer has a great web site called Tom Moyer’s Testing Page (what else?) that covers a full range of testing performed on climbing and rescue gear. Included are rescue rigger force calculations, highline drop-testing, comparative testing of high strength cord, and euro death-knot (aka flat overhand) testing. He has a variety of videos, papers, and test results all listed on the site.

  1. Andrew October 15, 2011 All photos gurlefatly received! It’s a pity you don’t have any bouldering ones but we’ll just have to take what we can get.. In all seriousness though, it would be brilliant to have some historical stuff on the site, I’ve not seen many older Shetland shots. Also, if you need any scanned at a higher quality I’ve got a fancy film scanner so could do some for you.
