Asana Green Pad
Going green means more than riding your bike to work - it means making the smallest impact on the earth that you can. Asana Climbing has created a new Green Pad to assist you in your sustainable lifestyle. The Green Pad is filled with 100% natural and compostable material. Asana recommends fill replacement after approximately two years, and warns against placing your pad in a wet area. (Water = Decomposition) And after you remove the old foam, you can simply add it to your compost pile.
The Green Pad is 48 x 36, with unbreakable aluminum buckles and a bottom flap so you can store your gear. With 2.5 inches of bio-degradable fill and an inch of closed cell this pad will have your knees and any other body parts covered. Pick one up at www.asanaclimbing.com

You go on a week-long bender, quickly draining your drink of choice while snuggling your face questionably close to the recently blown toe rand.

Once "a friend" tried to rig a rope swing off a tree in the hopes of make an arching path over their mother's car. Minutes later they were out $180.00 dollars for the windshield and sustained cuts and scratches on their backs that looked as if they spent a night with a wolverine. Needless to say the next time "my friend" rigged their next stunt they used the BlueWater Pulse and successfully completed the stunt with no injuries.
The latest addition to BlueWater's dynamic series, the Pulse is somewhere between a light weight rope and a traditional sport line. With a reinforced 9.4 core and a thick, glossy sheath, this line works great for steep sport routes. It is available in 60, 65, and 70 meters and it will come standard with BlueWater's Double Dry finish. To add this new line to your arsenal order it at www.bluewaterropes.com
Mad Rock - Mugen Tech
The next-gen version of Mad Rock's Mugen is the Mugen Tech. With a green friendly hemp lining and a 3-D mid-sole that aggressively cups the heel and pulls like another hand, this shoe has definitely stepped it up from the original. The Mugen Tech is designed for everything for anything from aggressive over hangs to casual edging. A sharp toe box and two Velcro straps ensure maximum torque, while a soft, padded, over lapping lip keeps the top of your feet sitting comfortably. Try out a pair at www.madrockclimbing.com
