Get a rack filled with the Metolius Ultralight Offset TCU, and you'll start only seeing offset placements in no time. With two small lobes on one side and a large lobe on the other, the Ultralight Offset TCU fits in shallow pin-scars found everywhere in Yosemite, Zion, and Little Cottonwood Canyon. Direct Axle Technology helps these cams live up to their Ultralight name, and it allows more placement options in shallow, narrow, bottoming, and other tricky cracks. Teethed lobes enhance grip on sandstone, and the machined cam stops double as passive placements like stoppers. Unique to Metolius, the range finder assists beginners in finding the best placements.
