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.

works as well as the c4s

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have used my friends rack (0.5 - 4) for about a year now. solid construction, no major complain. for people who are debating between c4 and friends rack, i think a couple things need to be noted

1) for the same range (~16mm to ~100mm), friends has 8 cams (#0.5 - #4), while BD has 7 (#0.4 - #4). friend has lighter weight per cam, but you are carrying one more, but you can also use that one more

2) it does need a bit lubricating once in a while, more often than BD.

3) coloring scheme does not work. Instead I actually look at the cam size and decide which one. not a big deal. but if this gets fixed, I would give the product a 5 star.

Great Cam!

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.
