Why We Like The Friend Camming Device

Wild Country's cams have been a climber's best friend for three and a half decades, and each year Wild Country modifies it to meet the needs of modern climbing. Our favorite part of the latest Friend Camming Device has to be the extendable sling that reduces rope drag on wandering trad climbs. The smooth handling, long-lasting durability, and twin axle design are also what makes this cam our closest Friend.


  • The original camming device redesigned for modern trad climbing
  • Twin axle design increases placement range and acts as cam stops
  • Oversized thumbloop with extendable sling for ease of use
  • Grippy trigger texture assists with proper handling

Handle well, great spring action, place with smooth trigger movement, cool sling extension and learned the clip one strand and leave racking carabiner in both to make cleaning and reracking hassle free.

great cams

these friends are too notch, shares colors with black diamond so that's helpful if you rack up multiple brands. they bite very well and have extendable slings built in.

Solid piece of pro, similar to other cams on the market but with noticeable improvements like the extendable sling. Just on the edge of being big enough to warrant a trigger keeper, but I haven’t had much issues with the lobes snagging on things as you climb.

Great Cams

I have now used this cam on several climbs and they are incredibly dependable and hold well. Extending slings are a nice bonus!

My first set of cams! The Friends have great action on the lobe retraction and are very intuitive to use with the extendable sling. Used these in Moab to get up some of my first crack climbs at Wall Street. Make sure you coordinate with your friend's Friends so you can get enough of a single size to tackle some of the sweet splitters out there.
