Michael O'Rourke: Elkland First Ascents and More Mad Rock
You're at your limit, pumped, panicked, and staring down the barrel of 20 feet of slack. Shaking, you go to clip a draw that's just within reach, but the rope gets stuck between the gate and biner nose, popping out and setting the biner swinging. Luckily, this unpleasant senario has a solution: the new Mad Rock Trigger Wire carabiner. Here, a specialized "trigger" holds the gate open until the slightest pressure is applied(as when a rope is dumped into the open gate). Also available in a quickdraw set up, the Trigger Wire is an innovative addition to your rack, ideal for desperate clips, use with a stick clip, or as a cheater biner when hanging those draws.
