A reminder from Black Diamond about how worn carabiners can chop ropes, posted after an accident in September where that happened.

Interesting find. I've never seen fixed draws on an outdoor wall in WA or CO, but this might be something to think about in gyms, where normally one might feel complacent about these things.

Obadiah, I'd bet the most likely reason you've never seen them is because you (and everyone else I know pretty much, including myself) don't climb stuff hard enough to warrant fixed draws. Try your hand at some seriously overhanging 5.13s and 14s and you might find some.

Crazy. I had no idea fixed draws were common anywhere.

For a local spot, I'm pretty certain exit 32 has fixed draws on some of the super hard routes.

"Actual Cave" at Exit 38 also has some fixed draws, with routes that are hard but probably doable by Evan or Kris.

I remember fixed draws being not that uncommon in Red River Gorge, KY, on overhung, hard problems like 5.12+. And a lot of the routes there see a ton of traffic. So, good to be aware of this.
