For only the third time in 33 years the iconic Wild Country Friends have truly changed.Radically revised hot forged cam lobes shed weight without losing strength. Wild Country also created more range per unit and optimized the overlaps between sizes. A new thumb loop, trigger and sling give a smoother action with more reach and extra clipping points. The Helium Friends keep a slick single stem, singleaxle, floating trigger design and the awesome holding power of Wild Country's 13.75 degree cam angle.

A rackful of Wild Country Helium Friends will make any trad climber feel safe with their unrivaled combination of usability, durability, and versatility. These lightweight Friends feature durable, hot-forged lobes with the original camming angle (13. 75) for maximum versatility in variously sized cracks, and overlapping ranges offer a plenitude of placement options. Its long single stem design keeps each Friend flexible for easy placements, and the smooth trigger makes for easy cleaning. The trigger also features stops and a short termination to help prevent over-camming, and the full-strength stops let the cam act as a stopper when opened completely. Wild Country added a durable Dyneema sling to the back for convenience, and anodized each cam with a different color for simple organization.
