Climbing Gear Recalled Due To Fall Hazard

Rock climbers, rapellers and other outdoor adventurers might want to check their gear.

The Sterling Rope Company recalling three models of their sewn cords because they break at a lower than published weight, meaning you could fall. 

The cords include the 8mm Aztek Sewn Bound Loop Prusik, the 8mm Aztek Elite Edge Restraint and the 8mm Accessory Cord Sewn Eye. About 480 of these were sold in Canada from January 2013 through January 2014.
