Tricam

Camp

Look on the rack of most experienced trad climbers and you are almost certain to see anåÊassortment of Tricams. Most climbers agree that visiting the Gunks without multiples ofåÊpink through purple is a serious mistake. These wondrous pieces of pro can be used eitheråÊas cams or nuts and often work where nothing else fi ts. Tricams are ideal in horizontalåÊcracks, pockets, and shallow vertical cracks. The larger sizes are an affordable way toåÊaugment a rack of cams and are ideal for belay anchors due to their high strength and lightåÊweight. Tricams can also be placed in icy cracks where regular cams do not work.åÊOur engineers recently spent some time working on one of the age-old questions withåÊthe Tricam ‰Û_ how to stiffen the sling without impeding its ability to engage the cammingåÊaction. After much experimenting, we rested on the simple solution of carrying the inneråÊband of webbing further towards the head and using a new stitch pattern. The result is aåÊnaturally stiffer sling that makes one-handed placements easier, but still engages the camåÊin active mode and will even increase durability over sharp edges with the additional layeråÊof material.

Features

  • Two placement modes: active cam and passive chock
  • Works where nothing else can fit, such as solution pockets
  • Excellent in horizontal cracks
  • Stiffer sewing on the slings of sizes 0.125 ‰ÛÒ 2.0 for easier one-handed placement andåÊextraction
