Old School Wild Country Friends - Rigid Stem Climbing Cam Break Tests


How strong are rigid stem cams? We tested several of the old style Wild Country Friends climbing cam. Rigid stems are not flexible if pulled around an edge and we wanted to see when they break if you break the rules. We damaged our LineScale2 but aren't too sad because LineScale 3 is almost out. There is a discount on the first few units for sale and that can be found at ➜➜➜

https://www.linegrip.com/shop/linesca.... It is way faster, has built in memory and has a lot more features than the LS2. Thank you @_saintandre_ for donating some of these cams!

Breaking Gear Fear

Edutainment has been a great way to help people understand their gear, and know the true limitations of it.  Watching HOW gear fails is more important than the force itself, as almost all gear is super good enough.  It's more important to share information on how to stay safe than it is to have a paywall.  We hope our stoke is contagious.
