Get a grip in those placements where other cams can’t!

Alien cams excel in thin shallow cracks, the ones we frequently dream about climbing high above the Yosemite valley floor.

What makes Aliens stand out from the crowd is their narrow head width and soft metal cams. Since the cam lobes are manufactured from an alloy which is softer than most other cams on the market they have greater bite when loaded. More bite - more security in marginal placements.

The stems are flexible which allows them to be slotted deeper into cracks and reduces the effects of rope drag which can cause cams to walk. The generously sized loop at the end of the unit make them easy to handle and allow the sewn in dyneema sling to pivot freely and easily, working with the flexible stem to further reduce the chances of the cam walking.

One thing to note is that Aliens cannot be used as passive protection, i.e. as a jammed placement like a nut or a hex.

Note: For the safety of all our customers we are unable to accept climbing ropes or hardware for refund or exchange.
