Friends, Cams and SLCDs
No matter what you call them, camming devices are genuine articles of the space age made with fabulously light and strong materials combined with slick operation and high degrees of safety. They are easy to place and remove from almost any parallel sided crack and colour coding helps make selection easier. Cams tighten as load is applied making them much safer than their ease of use implies.

SINGLE STEM CAMS: Small flexible shaft allows single handed placement into narrow places. Light weight and two fingered operation typify this design.

DOUBLE STEM CAMS: Improved control during placement and allows for single finger operation and resists twisting. Flexible stem provides for use at varying depths of crack with no levering.

3 CAM DESIGNS: Minimal width so can fit in smaller spaces but require extra careful placement, Useful in horizontal cracks and always used with two outer cams at the bottom for maximum stability.

4 CAM DESIGNS: Greater stability than 3 cam designs but wider. The wider the cam the less susceptable to 'walking' deeper into the crack as the rope moves through. Easier to position and more forgiving of uneven surfaces but require more room. Safest placement is with two outer cams at the bottom.

Rock Empire Pulsar Dyneema Cams
Rock Empire Pulsar Dyneema Cams


Size

Introduced in 2006 the superb Pulsar wide-range double stem cams have a wider pitch for greater stability and a performance combined with quality syling and feel that's second to none. If you want a great set of larger cams with wide camming distances you need look no further.

Thanks to its perfect relation between size and weight and superb stability in a crack, Pulsar offers the necessary confidence and safety. The metal body of Pulsar makes it almost indestructible. The U-shape of the body protects the trigger and thus prolongs its lifetime. Particularly big sizes 6 and 7 are a must have. Different size-based colours and a double sling for extension is a standard providing three clipping positions and an easy loop to use a longer sling without needing additional carabiners.

Rock Empire ReFlex Dyneema Cams
Rock Empire ReFlex Dyneema Cams


Size

Innovative design with the loop on the shaft providing an extra clipping point in addition to the doubled up dyneema sling which can be used short or long and also works well to allow longer slings to be looped though without the need for additional carabiners. We also find the loops useful for hooking a thumb through during placement and extraction.

This gear will offer the necessary confidence while leading the climb high above the cam. As its name indicates, 'Re-Flex' adapts to every situation. Its use stretches from tiny holes to horizontal cracks. This extraordinary 'Re-Flexibility' is ensured by a one-stem construction. Proven design, easy handling and coloured triggers with double slings will speed up your ascent.
