Kong's Cam Clean is a clever chest ascender designed for dirtier ascents. It blocks out muddy, icy ropes thanks to the holes on the cam itself. A special chemical treatment and thermal process give a much higher surface hardness, wear-resistance, and better handling in lower temperatures. Kong outfitted the ascender with a shock-loading lever and an anti-overturning cam to reduce the risk of accidental opening.
KONG CAM CLEAN: The Cam Clean is ideal as a chest ascender or when a full size ascender may be unnecessary. Features include innovative slots along the cam, which allow for mud or ice to be ejected, allowing the cam to bite more securely. UIAA approved. Will fit rope diameters 8mm-12mm. Weight: 160 grams
