Draws, reverso's: rope wear is a must to watch for, I've retired a few Reverso's in what I consider a short climbing life and multiple series of draws. During the route yesterday, Cyrille had some super lightweight draws that were probably a season old and in my opinion a good number thereof were beyond retirement.

Keep an eye on all your gear.

My current bugbear relates to harnesses: my new harnesses during the past 3 years from both Petzl and Arcteryx have been shockers on wear and based on personal experience, their reps in CH really don't give a FCUK. Unlike a shitload of sponsored climbing mates, I don't work routes to death or take regular big falls and in the case of harnesses I've sent back to both of them through the shops I'm of the opinion that these two companies reps are taking the piss.

I'm not sponsored nor have any desire to be and it shits me that these clowns are so complacent over one of THE principle components of the system.
