UIAA Gear Testing Videos

A couple of weeks ago, we posted a video of a carabiner strength test. The video was very popular. We got to see a press destroy a carabiner. Videos of gear breaking are always engaging. As a result, today we have posted a few more climbing gear testing videos from the UIAA. These are both terrifying and a lot of fun all at the same time!

I always find it interesting how they test rope (I don't know why), but it is a little creepy watching these tests. Maybe b/c there's no music? Anyway, great post, always was curious how they tested out harness and quickdraws.
