On today's show we are in alpine heaven. Firstly we taking a look at the award winning 6.5mm 'Rap Line II' rope from Edelrid. The rope is designed to be used as a utility line by mountain guides and big wall climbers. It functions as a static line for rapelling, hauling...etc until it is loaded dynamically. In this event, the inner sheath breaks, and the rap line functions like a dynamic rope. This could very literally be a life-saver in a dangerous un-planned event on the wall. Black Diamond have a long history of innovation in Alpinism, and their new 'Snaggletooth' crampon only confirms their reputation in this field. The Snaggletooth combines a horizontal monopoint with a second frontpoint, giving it greater adaptability whilst maintaining stability in all conditions including snow, mixed terrain and technical ice climbing. The perfect all rounder. Is Black Diamond's Snaggletooth The Perfect All-Round Crampon? | EpicTV Climbing Daily, Ep. 445
