Whether climbing aid or free, you're sure to find the placement you need with the new Metolius Master Cams.


The Metolius Master Cam combines a nice, flexible cable with an ultra-narrow head for hard aid or free climbing. Since metolius invented the CNC milled cam-stop, they naturally applied them to Master Cams. The longer body affords additional reach when top-stepping or stretching for that hard-to-get placement. The Range Finder system also provides critical placement feedback for those who need it. Master Cams are hand-built in Bend, Oregon. Each one is thoroughly inspected and every unit is tested to 5 kN or above. Master Cams are CE and UIAA certified.


Metolius built the Master Cam with a flexible single-stem design and narrow head profile to get it into the smallest, weirdest pods and pin scars, and to give it purchase once it's in there. CNC-machined cam stops provide extra passive strength if this cam tips out once it's inside a crack, so you don't have to stress your placement when you're making the crux moves 20 feet above. Metolius also added a large thumb loop to give aid climbers a short clip-in point and help trad climbers fire in gear quickly when they need to.


This single-stem unit fits better in tight placements than the U-shaped bodies and the flexible, single cable reduces leverage to minimize walking. Master Cams are hand-built in Metolius' Bend, Oregon shop. -- A flexible, single stem unit-- Ultra-narrow head width-- Molded thumb piece -- 13 mm Monster slings webbing (36% Dyneema/64% nylon)-- Ranger Finder tells you at a glance if you've chosen the right size cam for the placement-- Optimized cam angle for more outward force-- Machined cam stops-- Color-coded sewn slings and tubing-- CNC machined for much greater precision than stamped or extruded cams -- 7075 T-6 aluminum-- CE/UIAA certified
