Features of Camp USA Tricam Set Two placement modes: active cam and passive chock Works where nothing else can Fit, such as solution pockets Excellent in horizontal cracks Updated for 2013, with stiffer sewing on the slings for easier one-handed placement and extraction
Look on the rack of most experienced trad climbers and you are almost certain to see an assortment of C.A.M.P. Tricams. Most climbers agree that visiting the Gunks without multiples of pink through purple is a serious mistake. These wondrous pieces of pro can be used either as cams or nuts and often work where nothing else fi ts. Tricams are ideal in horizontal cracks, pockets, and shallow vertical cracks. The larger sizes are an affordable way to augment a rack of cams and are ideal for belay anchors due to their high strength and light weight. Tricams can also be placed in icy cracks where regular cams do not work. Our engineers recently spent some time working on one of the age-old questions with the Tricam ... how to stiffen the sling without impeding its ability to engage the camming action. After much experimenting, we rested on the simple solution of carrying the inner band of webbing further towards the head and using a new stitch pattern. The result is a naturally stiffer sling that makes one-handed placements easier, but still engages the cam in active mode and will even increase durability over sharp edges with the additional layer of material.
The new Flash Down Booties weigh an average of 3oz (85g) per pair in the Medium size. 1/4" foam insole provides just enough warmth and support beneath your feet while the 12Denier ripstop nylon shell allows the down to reach its maximum loft potential. A simple elastic draw closure above the ankle keeps the cold air outside while your feet stay cozy and warm. At just 1 1/2 oz (42g) per foot these booties must be packed away or on your feet because they are light enough to blow away on a windy day if you leave them out.

Stronger than any straight-laced design, the CAMP Tri Cam Set uses the strength and stability of the triangle to keep you safe on your climb. Functional in both cammed and chocked positions, the Tri Cam offers passive nut and active cam placement options - they can be placed in the extended mode like a standard nut, or flipped over in a camming configuration for parallel cracks.
