On July 20, 2023, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recalled Salewa USA’s Wild Country Superlight Rocks cable wire chocks, used for climbing, due to fall hazards.
According to the CPSC, if the cable wires are exposed to seaside conditions, the wires can corrode and weaken, causing a climber to fall.
Approximately 3,550 units were recalled, with an additional 225 sold in Canada.
What climbing wire models are included in the recall?
The recall includes Salewa USA’s Wild Country brand Superlight Rocks single cable wire chocks in two models:

The brand and product names are located on the wire chocks’ swages (the part that loops the wire).
