In this video from TheDanMcK, you get a sense of the importance of checking your climbing equipment before use.
As he describes the process:
In this video, i’ve laid out all my equipment for visual inspections to check for damaged or broken wires. I’m preparing for a series of multi pitch climbs in the four corners area. As you can see, I like Wild Country Friends. They have a great design and are relatively light compared to other companies cams.
As always, safety first!
