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


Astroman, Serenity, Royal Arches, and most of the Valley's classic climbs require the Metolius Master Cam Yosemite Package. This package includes six Metolius solid finger-sized Master Cams (numbers two, three, and four) for those slim cracks that seem to go on and on. Each cam features an ultra-narrow head for easier placing on tricky free climbs and even trickier aid climbs. Metolius designed the Master Cam with an optimized camming angle for a more secure placement that doesn't hinder easy cleaning. The flexible single stem simplifies setting, and the molded thumb piece enhances ergonomics. Metolius also added machined cam stops for extra security, an easy-to-learn Range Finder for the gumbies, and a long-lasting Monster Sling.


The Metolius Master Cam combines a nice, flexy 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.


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
