Climbing cams (A.K.A. camming devices, also known as climbing friends, or more correctly Spring Loaded Camming Devices) are pieces of rock climbing equipment that fit into parallel-sided or even slightly flared cracks to provide protection. Cams are classed by climbers as active protection as they have moving parts. They are an important piece of safety gear when climbing traditionally outdoors, they can help you place protection where a nut or a hex (passive protection) might not work.
There are various types of cams available in many different brands, colours, shapes and sizes. If you need any help in choosing the right protection for your climbing and safety, please give us a call and we'd be happy to help.
