    Best approved Belay devices for Vertical (Level 2) Cave Leader

    Just reviving this post because I have just seen the new Petzl NEOX. It is EN15151-1 and rated for use with EN1891 semi-static rope. This device is very close to a gri-gri, which BCA class as an inappropriate device for belaying (even though the current version is rated). The main reason seems...

    FOUND: Backup light

    I found a green Princeton Tec Attitude backup light floating around at the bottom of Juniper Gulf. It looks like it had been there for quite some time, however, to praise it's waterproof capabilities (and probably bash-ability), it still works!  :clap2: It has a name written on the side of it...
