The time tested aluminum offset is back, and DMM does a great job. It's amazing how well these things seat into pin scars - they fit so well, it almost takes a bit of fun out of aid pitches because they make it so easy. But I'm not complaining. I've also been throwing them on the rack for free climbing. Basically, anywhere you see a pin scar, these babies will give you a bomber placement.

This would depend on a number of factors. If you just want to get the bag off the ground get a standard pulley and tie the rope off at the ground level. The working load limit is 1349 lbs of force. Plenty strong for your bear bag. Once the camming unit is engaged and the teeth lock down. There is no way to pull the rope through unless you manually adjust the camming device to release the load. I'd advise against using this to pull up your bear bag - it's plenty strong for that, but definitely not what it's designed to do. A lighter, simpler, and cheaper pulley would work just fine. However, if you're setting your bear bag up somehow where you can put a pulley up there, I think you're doing it wrong. If you can climb up there to put a pulley in place, a bear can climb up there to get your stuff.
