I have used this rope to rappel in Zion's Subway Slot Canyon and also in a little known slot called West Canyon off of Lake Powell. It works great for slow rappels, does not absorb too much water, dries quickly and does not stretch too much under load. We carry two of the ropes in order to handle longer descents. I also like having a rope with me for backcountry scrambles but don't want the weight of a 60m x 11mm monster.

I've used Fox protective gear a lot and they can take a lot of abuse. I ride 2 - 3 times a week on SoCal Trails and bring these lightweight guards with me for the gnarly descents. They are very comfortable with little restriction of movement. My only note to Fox would be to have some way to fasten the loose ends of the adjustment straps so they don't flap at 40 MPH on a fast downhill fireroad. :-)

These shoes delivered grip and comfort by the bucket! I used them for the first time in Zion's Subway Slot Canyon. They gripped on wet and dry stone alike, down the loose approach trail, through streams and waterfalls. Only slimy green algae could defeat them so no surprise there.
The shoes were on my feet for about 9 hours with no blisters, shin splints or discomfort at all. I wore regular socks on the approach and neoprene "warmers" in the water.
A lot of bang for the buck and they don't look any worse after their first trip; no fraying or discoloring.

I used mine on Denali for days and days with absolutely no problems. The fit was great and on summit day they easily worked with my OR Brooks Ranger overboots.
If you do your research you can buy the right stuff that fits well. If you make a mistake when ordering it is your responsibility to make it right, not OR's.
