The world’s best selling spring loaded camming device for the last 14 years just got 10 percent lighter with brand new C4’s for 2019. In the past, the larger 4,5, and 6 Camalots posed a risk of catching on rocks while climbing. Black Diamond addressed this issue by adding triggers that allow the cams to remain compressed on your harness and expand with ease when you are ready to climb.

It seems like you always have more stuff than you can carry when climbing in the outdoors. The only issue of climbing with a backpack is that it can make reaching gear on your harness difficult and can restrict arm movement. Salewa Wall’s Apex 32 Climbing Pack addresses all of these issues and more. Its contact flow fit system keeps you cool, while allowing your arms and body to move in all the ways they should. The packs construction is made from a material called ROBIC, which is a high tenacity nylon that is 60 percent stronger than your typical nylon.
