As friendly as offwidths can get.
A rackful of Wild Country Tech Friends confidently prepares your trad climbing adventures for offwidthing action in any wide crack. These large 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 floating trigger feels like you're using a smaller cam. The trigger also features independent cam triggering, stops, and a short termination for easy cleaning and 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.

Excited to climb offwidth!
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I decided to pick up a #5 and #6 for my upcoming trip to Vedauwoo Wyoming. I chose these over Black Diamond Camalot for a couple reasons. First, because these have more stable axles (the lobes are slightly larger). Second, my climbing partner already has Camalots and I prefer to have a variety of both when I climb. Never thought I would ever say I'm excited to climb offwidth, but yea, I am.
