    Metolius Rock Climbing Ultralight TCU Cam - The Rock Climbing Ultralight TCU Cam by Metolius is the world's best-selling mini cam. The narrow head width allows for more placement options in shallow, narrow, or bottoming placements and better cam lobe visibility makes tricky placements easier as well, especially in the small sizes. A Range Finder tells you at a glance if you’ve chosen the right size cam for the placement, while the wider cam faces and optimized cam angle offer more grip and increased holding power. CNC machined for much greater precision than stamped or extruded cams the u-shaped body offers greater durability and unparalleled control during placement and retraction. Plus they carry CE and UIAA certification, which are baseline safety standards climbers have come to expect. So, the next time you come upon a pin scar or flaring crack, don't forget to use the Rock Climbing Ultralight TCU Cam by Metolius.

    Great cams. If you're used to placing nuts these cams are great. Perfect for rock cracks that constrict, like in granite. They fit better in small places than regular cams and make better placements by constrictions. You don't think you need more gear but should try these out.

    While originally offsets were made to fit into pin scars I find that they fit into all kinds of cracks often better than BD C4s and C3. The set 0-5 are my doubles covering from a the green C4 down to the purple C3. Highly recommended since it is just about impossible to find offset aliens.




    I have used metolius offset cams since their inception over 10 yrs ago. They work in placements that are marginal for traditional uniform cams. Which I find is fairly often. I have used them in everything from granite to sandstone, big walls to single pitch, Yosemite to Rumney. This new evolution in design is better than ever. Add them to your rack. You will be glad you did.
