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.
The Metolius Master Cam is a great for all around free climbing with small to medium crack sizes. This single-stem unit fits better in tight placements than the U-shaped bodies and the flexible, single cable reduces leverage to minimize walking.

Whether climbing aid or free, you're sure to find the placement you need with the new Metolius Master Cams. Single-stem design allows cams to fit into tight spots; flexible cable reduces walking and enables placement in horizontal cracks. Long body provides excellent reach when top-stepping in aiders and stretching for hard-to-reach placements. Narrow head enables secure placements in pin scars and small, uneven cracks. Ergonomic thumb piece creates excellent control while placing and removing cams. Range Finder markings eliminate guess work: Green Zone for go, Yellow Zone for caution and Red Zone for stop!; Range Finder markings only apply to sizes #2 - #6. Lightweight Dyneema nylon slings are color-coded for quick, easy identification. Hand-built and tested by Metolius in Bend, Oregon.
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.
