The Metolius Ultralight TCU 1 is a mid-sized piece from the Ultralight climbing cam range, the lightest mini cam set in the world.
Great for both alpine and free climbing where weight is a critical factor, their narrow head width allows them to fit so many placements that other climbing cams can't even look at, such as shallow seams, pockets and pin scars. By going direct to the axle (D.A.T.), Metolius have made the world's best selling mini cam even lighter and more versatile. As with all Metolius cams the design is focused on holding power and they do this with their optimised cam angle for more outward force, and wider cam face for more grip.
Now with the Range Finder feedback system they are easier and safer to place than ever! Metolius TCUs are a must-have for any climber's rack!
