TEAM AUSSIE WINS SECOND PLACE USING YATES ADVENTURE RACE HARNESS

We are very pleased to be able to tell Team Aussie not only successfully completed the Discovery Channel Eco Challenge Morocco, but also achieved 2nd place out of 50 of the World's top adventure racing teams. We Couldn't have done it with out our YATES harnesses!

The climbing harness that you made for us were the lightest we'd ever seen. Secure and comfortable rappelling down both 300' drops in free space, and through some incredible gorges deep in the Atlas mountains. In this section of the course we rappelled down a series of 20 ropes - boulder hopping, wading waist deep water and switching on and off ropes with time against us. We also appreciated them during the 3 days when they were stashed in the bottom of our packs, without taking up the limited space available or weighing is down.
