Hi.
May be some body thinks that there is no reason to sell company, I have just run it, what actually i did for several months after Dave passed away.
I hope people can understand that it was very emotionally ( actually not technically)hard for me to be in the shop with out Dave, in the shop where we spend most our time together, where we worked together.
I hope I can find some body who will be same way like Dave was (climber and engineer), who can run this small company with large potential and do not trash it.
I hope I answered for question: why?

Nadia: Malcom at Trango should be the first call. He can provide you an income stream based on each cam sold, and his small cams, the splitter cams, suck in comparison to Aliens, but the quality is certainly there. Love to see Trango mfg them. I emailed him to give him a heads up. Here's some of the inventors who went with Trango discussing why they did.

Malcolm has been very honorable towards them, and the inventors and Mfgs but especially we as climbers have benefited. Thanks Trango!



Good luck with whatever happens.

such an ideal piece of gear for walls, and even free climbing in most ways. hope this works out so they keep getting produced and even improved upon.

The hybrids gave us all a leg up on being able to clean old aid lines. A truly great product that I would hate to see disappear as well.

I would like the current Employees do a BUY OUT.

That is what I would do.

I love my Aliens too, especially since I was able to proof test them to 1,200lbf each. Unfortunately, for a million reasons, this deal is probably not doable for us. But if there is anyone out there who is looking for a labor of love....

Climb safe,

could we publicly buy it ? there's enough gearheads that love aliens - could we organize and hire someone to run it and do it that way ?
