The only way you could go lighter than this would be soloing routes.
Metolius designed its Ultralight TCU to give you tiny but bomber trad gear that doesn't weigh you down. Its lightweight appeal is due to the Direct Axle Technology, which places each lobe as close to one another as possible. This technology also helps you set each cam in tricky, shallow, and narrow placements with ease. Metolius made each TCU with three wide lobes that increases its grip on the rock as opposed to conventional TCUs or even four-lobed designs, and each lobe has a cam stop that helps it act passively like a stopper. CNC machined means each cam gives better precision so you don't fumble around when you're placing it. The U-shaped double stem is very durable, and yet remains highly flexible for better control when you're placing it or your second is cleaning it. Each cam comes with a color-coded Monster sling for easier identification on the wall, and the Range Finder on sizes 2 - 4 let you know if you're placement is at the most minimum or maximum range available on the cam.
