On Episode 114 of the Enormocast, I sit down with Black Diamond’s Category Director and former Director of Quality, Kolin Powick. Episode 114 is filled with science and nerds out on gear. We start specifically with Black Diamond’s recent recalls, but then we move into gear issues generally. Myths, misconceptions, mistakes are all discussed. As Kolin says a few times, preventing accidents is in the best interest of the industry. Kolin wants you to live to climb another day, but he also wants you to give up that ratty old harness and those manky cams before its too late. And most importantly, he wants you to know that he is Canadian. Very Canadian. The BD recalls. Black Diamond Q C Labs – where gear goes to die.
