About a week ago Rock Exotica released the ORCA caribiner, which is the first hybrid caribiner available on the market. ORCA stands for open regular close auto, which pretty much describes how it works. Apparently the brainchild behind the creation of this hybrid ‘biner came from the owner of Rock Exotica, who came up with the idea because all of his friends got married and their wives didn’t want them to go rock climbing anymore. Thus, he needed a way to climb alone, and the ORCA was born. I included a video below that shows it in operation, let us know what you think!
