Wild Country Friend Cam Set - #0.4, #0.5, #0.75


A variety of hand sizes can lead to climbing partners finding different cruxes on the same pitch, but there's one thing everyone can agree on, that the 0.5 size is never easy. Wild Country wanted to make sure you had an extra purple cam with you at all times so you never have to run it out through the crux, which is why the made the Friend Cam Set in finger sizes. These three-finger size cams will round out your rack, so you can finally take on the crux pitches of Fine Jade and Jah Man without hesitation, and the hot-forged aluminum lobes are strong enough to hold any fall when well placed, yet wide enough to reduce overall wear on the rock. The ergonomic trigger makes it easy to handle each cam, even when your shaking from the pump you've got in your forearms, and the color-coded design makes it easy to get the right piece of gear the first time. Rounded out with an extendable sling, letting you leave your alpine draws in the gear closet, this set of small cams is just what you need to get back into trad climbing this year.
