Dual-axle design for huge range; extendable sling
Wild Country Friends are now even better with the a dual-axle design and extendable sling. The Friend is the most iconic climbing protection ever made. These Friends upgrades include: hollow axles (Patent Pending) are stiffer for less weight; wide, skimmed lobes grip better yet are kinder on the rock; and an upgraded 12 mm Dyneema sling is agile and easily extended, saving time and the weight of having to use a quickdraw on each cam. Friends are the only twin axle cam that combines the convenience and comfort of a molded thumb loop with the speed and utility of an extendable sling.
Throughout their 38 year tenure, although the construction has changed, their essence remains the same. At the heart of each iteration has been the definitive 13.75° cam angle; proven in thousands of miles of cracks climbed since 1977.
