Title: Don’t Get Duped by Bad Gear

Description: Do you buy or use climbing equipment? With so much equipment on the market these days, and little guidance from the ANSI Z133, it’s challenging to know what to buy and from where to buy it. And how can we be certain that what we ordered is what we think it is? How can we be responsible consumers? Learn how to interpret the nuances of climbing equipment and ensure that what you are buying is safe for use in tree care.
