Stronger than any straight-laced design, the CAMP Tri Cam Set uses the strength and stability of the triangle to keep you safe on your climb. Functional in both cammed and chocked positions, the Tri Cam offers passive nut and active cam placement options - they can be placed in the extended mode like a standard nut, or flipped over in a camming configuration for parallel cracks.

When you're trying to keep the weight of your rack down, the Camp USA Tricams offer the simplicity and range you need for Cochise Stronghold, the Gunks, and more. Naturally designed for use as either a passive chock or active cam, you get the benefit of range without worrying about springs. Great for shallow vertical or horizontal cracks, these tricams are also perfect for those sketchy pockets that might cause other gear to walk or rattle loose. On desert rock or in icy mixed conditions, the versatile Tricam will get you to your summit!

C.A.M.P. Big Wall & Protection Tricam - Blue 2.5 377869 92325. A.M.P. Tricams. Most climbers agree that visiting the Gunks without multiples of pink through purple is a serious mistake. These wondrous pieces of pro can be used either as cams or nuts and often work where nothing else fi ts. Tricams are ideal in horizontal cracks pockets and shallow vertical cracks. The larger sizes are an affordable way to augment a rack of cams and are ideal for belay anchors due to their high strength and light weight. Tricams can also be placed in icy cracks where regular cams do not work. Our engineers recently spent some time working on one of the age-old questions with the Tricam how to stiffen the sling without impeding its ability to engage the camming action. After much experimenting we rested on the simple solution of carrying the inner band of webbing further towards the head and using a new stitch pattern. The result is a naturally stiffer sling that makes one-handed placements easier but still engages the cam in active mode and will even increase durability over sharp edges with the additional layer of material.
