TCUs are great for both alpine and free climbing where weight is a critical factor. Aid climbers also love them because their narrow head width allows them to fit so many placements that other cams won't, like shallow seams, pockets and pin scars. Now with the Range Finder feedback system, they are easier and safer to place than ever. The stainless steel, U-shaped body offers greater durability than single-stem units and unparalleled control during placement and retraction. As with all Metolius cams, the design is focused on holding power. Metolius TCUs are a must-have for any climber's rack.
By going direct to the axle (D.A.T.) Metolius has made the world’s best selling mini cam even lighter and more versatile. This new technology makes our TCU’s the lightest units in the world, opens up a myriad of placement options and makes placement easier. The design is focused on holding power, and Metolius does this with their optimized cam angle for more outward force and wider cam faces for more grip. The Range Finder system makes them easier and safer to place than ever. A must have piece for free climbing, aid routes and alpine climbing.
