The Power Cam Pack by Metolius are the all-around workhorse of the Metolius line. Power Cams are at home on any type of rock, from the big walls of Squamish granite to the desert towers of Utah Sandstone, from mountainous Rockies limestone to super-hard Gunks quartzite. They're also perfect whether you're free or aid climbing, high in the mountains or at a roadside crag. With the new Range Finder feature giving you instant placement feedback, they are easier and safer to place than ever! Extensive testing in real rock has convinced Metolius to design Power Cams to maximize holding power. Metolius achieves greater holding power by reducing the cam angle slightly so the cam lobes push out harder against the walls of the placement. They've also widened the faces of the cam lobes to get more grip and to spread the force of a fall over a larger area.The best all-around climbing cam is now significantly lighter and more versatile due to our new Direct Axle Technology (DAT). DAT reduces head-width thereby increasing placement options and user visibility. Our optimized cam angle focuses on holding power and the wide beefy cam lobes are designed for extra grip. Our Range Finder system tells you at a glance whether you have chosen the optimum sized unit. Super lightweight, strong and stable, Ultralight Power Cams make the ultimate foundation for any climbers rack!

outstanding small cams, good for finger cracks and mixed routes.These little cams are awesome. Light, sturdy, and love the color-coding on them so that you get maximum cammage. I just moved back to Southern California and started on the local metamorphic granite crags, with lots of finger cracks that are just a bit too over-climbed to use stoppers on. And if you don't want to carry heavy hexes and want to go easy on your second, these are the best cams out there. I've spent twenty minutes attempting to chisel out wedged stoppers that my over-enthusiastic fiance placed and had to abandon them when we started using these cams our turnaround time decreased dramatically, as did knuckle damage.

Simple, well Made CamsA very straight forward design, with a minimum of extras and good construction quality. I rarely find the U stem an issue, and prefer it for ergonomics in the larger sizes. These do have somewhat less range than the ubiquitous Camalots, but climb with them for a little while and you will pick it up pretty quick.,,,,I don't find the coloured dots particularly helpful but they don't make life any harder either, so why worry.,,,,My only, minor grievence, with these units is my preference for an open loop sling to make clipping a fraction easier.

Nice and lightI think these are lighter than Black diamond Camalot cams because of the one axis design. Black diamond's cams are more popular among people i know, but the Metolius cams are also nice. The slings are color coded. And they are made in the USA. BD cams are now made in China. ,,Be ware that the lobes are not color coated. And I personally think it's a big con for the product.

Light, not quite as good as CamalotsThese things work pretty well. They are way light, easy to place, easy to get out when you let your friend lead and s/he overcams them, etc. Their expansion range is sub-par compared to BD Camalots, however, and they don't feel quite as bomber in many placements. But they are a heck of a lot lighter, and I've whipped on one and it didn't pull, so I'd recommend them.
