REI: Sponsor and Test Site

I want to welcome REI (specifically, their flagship store in Seattle) as our newest sponsor, and thank them for letting us use the Pinnacle for climbing tests.

We wanted to do some test climbs to a higher altitude than the ~18 feet we can get in our shop, and luckily the flagship REI store was excited to let us use their climbing tower. Normally it’s for human rock climbers, but heck, a climber’s a climber, so we took our system, hung a cable from their #11 “beyond vertical” path, and shot up faster than any human has climbed that path!

Afterwards, a member of the REI staff presented our climber with an “I climbed the REI Pinnacle” certificate.

Here’s the certificate:
