It was a draw that had been in place for a while. Again, the climber asked for a take and the webbing broke at the screw link upon weighting it. I don't know it was pure body weight only, in that sometimes people take when they're above the draw and swing on the draw; it definitely wasn't a whipper. At the gym this morning, I saw more than half of the draws have been replaced with brand new ones with Touchstone lettering sewn in. The old ones are the pro type Petzl draws that you can't buy at stores. It's no coincedence that the gym just decided to replace the draws en masse. If any of this is incorrect, then someone from BIW should come out and say otherwise.
How the f$#@ is it okay just because no one got hurt? It shows a disregard by the gym for the safety of the climbers by not replacing the draws more regularly. I guess nobody will feel sorry for you if you get hurt due to a draw breaking.

I thank you for the thread, this should be put out there as much as possible so that people don't walk into a facility that is poorly maintained to the point where things are failing that never should.
