We spoke with MSA, the company that makes our Redpoint Descenders today. They do not expect to have any type of answer or solution until “the first part of November”. Until then, they recommend not using the auto belays.
We sincerely apologize for this delay and overall frustrating situation. This temporary loss of the auto belays is very trying on everyone. This is a worldwide recall.
What is the BRC doing?
-Partner Finder: sign up at the front desk and we will help match up partners
-BRC Staff Belays: managers and staff will do everything possible to belay members. Ask at the front desk if someone is not busy and can “give you some belays”. No guarantees, but we will do our best to accommodate requests
-Discounted private belay sessions: $20 per hour (normally $35). Call/ask the front desk for availability
Please contact Kevin Bains or Mike Alkaitis if you have questions or concerns
Thank you for your patience,
