The information in this website is by no means definitive or scientific. Do not think that the results of these experiments are reproducible, accurate, or complete.

If you are interested in rock climbing, sailing, rescue or any other activity that relies on load-bearing equipment, you should seek expert instruction and only use professionally manufactured, tested and certified gear. A reasonable person does not make their own load-bearing equipment.
Rock climbing, or any other application for load-bearing sewing, incurs real risks and any seam that fails will have severe consequences to life and limb or property.
