Show Description

A re-jigged cam angle improves the glide up the rope and grips better on muddy or icy ropes. The cam redesign also reduces wear on the cam, making it more durable.

  • Chrome-plated steel cam with angled teeth is self cleaning, and secure on muddy or icy ropes.
  • Moulded rubber and plastic grip with a nylon catch. New design has an improved ergonomic shape that keeps your hand from sliding to the bottom.
  • Improved cam grips wet or muddy ropes, yet slides up easily.
  • Safety catch prevents the cam from opening too far and losing the rope.
  • Recessed trigger is guarded from accidental opening on low-angle terrain. Can still be installed or removed with one hand.
  • Fits 8 – 13mm ropes.
  • 2 attachment points are useful for hauling systems. Smaller hole accepts a screw-link for aiders or slings.
  • Not intended shock loading or for self-belay setups.
  • Sold individually. Black is left, grey is right.
