Wild Country - Tech Friend (Fall 2016)
Built to perform, these burly units have a reassuring feel and a satisfying solidity when placed. They don’t move easily, leaving you to concentrate on the climbing above not wondering what’s happening below. The Big Friends consists of Friends 5 and 6 and take the overall range of the Friends offered by Wild Country - starting with Zero Friends and thru Helium Friends - from a miniscule 5.5mm to a whopping 197mm.
As Tom Randall, possibly the world's best wide crack climber, says:
"One of the best things about the large Friends (5 & 6) is that they're wide enough to create a really stable base. This is massively important when using them tipped out - I'd happily trust a big friend all the way to its limit. For me there's no other big camming device on the market that inspires as much confidence when upside down in a 5.14 offwidth and the the action on the larger friends is always reassuring smooth, so you know you can concentrate 100% on the climbing."
