Climbing tape is designed to be applied directly to skin and unless you are allergic to the adhesive you shouldn't have any issues although I doubt its practicality because its neither transparent nor double sided. Unless the idea is walking around with strips of white tape on your boobs?

They where Five Ten Anasazi Moccasyms. When Chris Sharma climbed Dreamcatcher he was still sponsored by Five Ten. In the video you can also see him wearing the Anasazi VS. Ironicaly the VS had a bad heel design at the time which five ten changed on later versions of the shoe and the Moccasyms aren't known for known for there heel hooking abilities.

Hey Jonas, Most climbing tape is very similar, although some climbers will swear by certain brands. The main difference is usually the width. Another thing you may need to keep in mind is if you have an allergy to the glue on the tape, it's very rare but not unheard of. You can find the three options that we currently sell here: https://shop.epictv.com/en/products?search_api_views_fulltext=tape&f[0]=field_category%3A1695 Hope that helps, Dave

Hey Alva, We have come up trumps on this one sorry! What we can say though, is that the Link Cams from Omega pacific boast similar strengths to other cams around the same sizes. The strength rating is a measure of the weakest part of the cam so you can be sure that even at the smallest and biggest working ranges of the link cams, your safety is no more compromised than it would be with other manufacturers of cams. Hope that helps, Dave

Hi Laurelle, This is my kind of question! Cam lobes aren't all the exact same shape, but they are all forms of logarithmic spirals. The key property of a logarithmic spiral is that any straight line originating from the centre of the spiral will always intersect the spiral at the same angle. The reason for integrating this shape in the construction of cam lobes, is that the lobe will make make contact with the rock at the same angle throughout the cam's entire range. Depending actual angle is dependent on the shape of the lobe.... (more)
