They will fit!

I've used these in Taqhuitz, Yosemite, tuolumne, JTree and the rest of the sierra and I find myself using these regularly as my go to small piece. I have the full set, although I only free climb the 0 and 00 have been great as an extra piece in an anchor, equalized with a sliding x to another piece or simply by themselves when I couldn't get any other piece in. The 1-2 are the bread and butter of the set– small enough to fit where others won't but big enough to hold a bomber fall. I've had plenty of good memories where the (2) yellow or (1) blue fit right in and gave me a lot of piece of mind. The 3-4 are also great as an overlap to BD C4's when you need something narrower. I always carry all of them as they are really light weight. I've never had one walk but I do tend to sling all my placements long...

Only con is they tend to gum up after a while– I usually have to clean and lube them once or twice a year to keep the trigger action smooth (I've never had to do that with a BD C4). I just purchased a set of master cams as a 4cu complement to these TCU's. I love the variety of metolius cams and I highly recommend becoming familiar with their color coding system which will help you when you inevitably have to use them when using your buddy's rack. BD for the bigger stuff and metolius for the tiny pieces....
