It is a 'wearable' camera that one is "supposed" to bring and record one's craziest/silliest outdoor exploits.

That's the dumbest thing I ever heard of. Speaking from experience, you don't want hard evidence of some of the real stupidity.

On the flip side, it is neat seeing that perspective on routes you haven't done. I saw a good one of the Nose a while back. Of course, that sort of ruins the experience when you actually get there, but it is what it is.

They are definitely a flag; the experience of climbing is still so new, one wants to relive it as much as possible, show friends, etc. It's all good, whatever. Just don't fall on ice.

I think they're great! My son gets killer MTB videos with his, and a friend set one of our Gunks climbs to some DMB that was super fun. Compared to the lame assed video I got going MTB  with a hand-held a few weeks ago they are far superior. If you both have one it's crazy fun!

I think they pitched off that for fun. How could you get the screws in and then blow the rest?  ::)
