At ITRS (International Technical Rescue Symposium) this year one of the presenters expressed interest in pull testing old webbing to see how it holds up to exposure to the elements. As canyoners we often find ourselves in the position of replacing old webbing at anchors. I would like to ask anyone who is interested to collect and send me old webbing from canyon anchors. Please note the canyon it was removed from and any pertinent information (sun/water exposure or lack of etc.) that might be relevant. These samples will be categorized by appearance (faded, crusty etc.) and pulled to failure. Data will be presented at next year's ITRS. Please contact me directly if you have anything to contribute. Thanks.
