Totem Cams

The Totem Cam is perhaps the most innovative trad piece of the last several years, coming to our kit with more versatility for aid climbing on big walls. Used as a standard cam, the Totem boasts a large placement range, a surprisingly light weight, and a reliable fall strength for any crack you climb.

Totem's patented Direct Loading Camming Device gives the Totem an extreme advantage over other cams and even most aid climbing pieces. The Direct Loading Camming Device allows you to place two of the Totem's lobes, clip the stem connecting to the lobes, and bare your weight on the two lobes like you would on any aid placement. This system gives you an easier time setting bomber placements in flares, pin scars, and other cracks that would have been difficult, or impossible, to place.


  • Innovative cam for climbing trad, aid, and big walls
  • Rated for aid climbing with only two lobes placed
  • Well-sized lobes for easy placing and cleaning
  • Flexible dual stems for placing horizontally and vertically
  • Item #TOC0001
