A climber's best friend.
A rackful of Wild Country Helium Friends will make any trad climber feel safe with their unrivaled combination of usability, durability, and versatility. These lightweight Friends feature durable, hot-forged lobes with the original camming angle (13.75°) for maximum versatility in variously sized cracks, and overlapping ranges offer a plenitude of placement options. Its long single stem design keeps each Friend flexible for easy placements, and the smooth trigger makes for easy cleaning. The trigger also features stops and a short termination to help prevent over-camming, and the full-strength stops let the cam act as a stopper when opened completely. Wild Country added a durable Dyneema sling to the back for convenience, and anodized each cam with a different color for simple organization.

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've used these for about two years. Plenty of falls on plenty of types of rock. Always bomber. Never on sandstone however. No reason just not a lot of sandstone where I live. Granite, limestone, basalt, tuft, choss...always holds even when the rock doesn't.
