MYO headlamps and AA/LR6 rechargeable batteriesDue to advances in the performance characteristics of AA/LR6 rechargeable batteries (especially their higher output during discharge), they can in certain cases of intensive use, cause quality and safety problems with MYO-series headlamps. When the headlamp is used with AA/LR6 rechargeable batteries, if a short-circuit appears in the cable connecting the battery case to the lamp, the cable can spark, melt, or catch fire. This poses a burn hazard to the user.

Big Up production report they filmed Chris Sharma sending his project at Clark Mountain! It's called Jumbo Love [5.15b], and it's probably the hardest sport climbing route in the world... You know, this gigantic route featured in King Lines (Big Up film about Sharma climber's life), and where Chris takes huge falls in a massive overhanging wall ? It's without doubt Chris' hardest route ever. Congratulations, Chris !
