Dan Middleton is the BMC Technical Officer. He knows all about gear. How it works, how it breaks and how it is made.
Dan is going live on the UKC Forums on Monday the 9th of August (that's next week!) to answer your questions on anything gear related.
Dan's expertise covers all technical climbing gear and also bolts, so if you want to know how to place them - or even how to take them out - he's your man.
Dan has been climbing for many years and before working at the BMC he worked in outdoor retail and also at Lyon Equipment, the distributor for Petzl, La Sportiva and several other brands.
Dan will be going live on the UKC Forums in this Forum Thread between the hours of 9 and 5. You are of course welcome to ask Dan questions outside of those times, and he'll do his best to respond either on the forum or via email.
- You can read about who is who at the BMC on their BMC Staff Page.
