CAMP Nylon 1 Tricam

CAMP Tricam Nylon Sling 1
CAMP Tricam Nylon Sling 1

• Rock Climbing, Alpinism
• Two placement modes: active cam and passive chock
• Works where nothing else can fit, such as solution pockets
• Excellent in horizontal cracks Look on the rack of most experienced trad climbers and you are almost certain to see a pink and a red Tricam, possibly two of each and a few others too. Most climbers agree that visiting the Gunks without multiples of pink through purple is a serious mistake. These wondrous nuts can be used either as cams or nuts and often work where nothing else fits. Tricams are ideal in horizontal cracks, pockets, and shallow vertical cracks. The larger sizes are an affordable way to augment a rack of cams; ideal for belay anchors due to their high strength and low weight. Tricams can also be placed in icy cracks where regular cams do not work.
