As part one of the BMC Live! series of online Q&A sessions, Dan will be available at UKClimbing.com on today to answer any questions you may have about equipment for walking, climbing and mountaineering.
• Just starting out?
• Does kit ever break, and why?

• Wondering whether to retire your rope or not?

Dan will be monitoring this thread until 10 pm tonight and answering your questions as quickly as he can. If he can't give you an immediate reply (because you've got him stymied) he'll admit it and get back to you when he can. After today, he'll answer any further questions but can't promise to make it snappy.
