Cliffhanger 2009

This was the third year CragX has been at Cliffhanger and thanks to the weather staying dry was the best attended yet. The DMM pull tester broke lots of karabiners, in a bid to demonstrate just how strong climbing gear actually is.

The new "Improved" pull up challenge using a Beastmaker 1000 certainly added interest to the competition. Winners will be notified by email once we have managed to enter you all onto the computer.
